Much thanks to the JRES fourth grade families for their very generous contributions and support of the recorder program. Instruments were ordered on Monday, September 8th and shipped the following Friday. I’m overjoyed that every student in need will be provided with an instrument. The kids are very excited, as am I. Thank YOU!
Lessons will take place during the regularly scheduled Music Specialist time beginning the week of Monday, September 29th. In an effort to help each student get and stay organized, a three ring music binder, would be helpful. Any size is okay, but it doesn’t need to be larger than 1” width. Instructional worksheets, sheet music and weekly practice charts will need to be transported to and from school.
Fourth graders will receive a grade for music class based largely on preparation. To be prepared for weekly lessons students will need their:
- music binder and
- signed practice chart.
After a few lessons, students will also be assessed on knowledge and performance based skills. Special performance opportunities will be offered to students who are prepared on a regular basis and meeting/exceeding performance expectations.
