    Hi Everyone! 

    I hope you had a wonderful Easter! Although it was nasty outside, I spent my time at church and Mrs. Davenport and I made a wonderful Easter dinner! Over these past few days I have continually had one word coming back to my mind, and that is THANKFUL.   

    • I am THANKFUL for YOU.

    • I am THANKFUL for music.

    • I am THANKFUL to be your teacher.

    • I am THANKFUL for your stories and adventures.

    • I am THANKFUL we are still connected. 

    • I am THANKFUL for the learning we share together.

      So, during this week, finish the following statement:     I am THANKFUL for________________


    I miss you all and I hope we can be together again soon! Making music just isn't the same without you! If you need anything or have any questions, do not hesitate to email or call!


    Love you all! Go Eagles!

Music Activities Week 4: 4/13 - 4/17

  • Chome Music Lab - Song Maker! 

    This week we are going to focus on composing! The term compose means to write or create, and this week you are going to create your very own song! 

     

    How do I use it?

    Create a song by clicking notes into the grid.  The top section of the grid can be used for high notes, and the lower section of the grid for low notes.  There are two rows of dots at the bottom for creating a rhythmic pattern (like drums and cymbals- percussion instruments).
