RES Spring Concert!

What an amazing performance by our 3rd & 4th graders this week!   The spring concert was a great success and a big thank you goes out to all the families, students and staff for their support of the arts at RES!  Please enjoy this clip of our young musicians singing “Let it Grow”.  A special recognition is due for our soloists;  Alexander Floyd,  Kelsey Millard,  Lily Korczykowski, Ella Villenueve,  Jabes Gifford, & David Slattery;  great job!








Video Share: Music this week at RES & SMS

Here’s a few short clips of what’s happening in music class this week at RES and Smilie.  RES 4th graders rehearse for their concert on 5/14.  RES Kindergarteners learn the notes on the keyboard,  Smilie students practice movement to music and RES 2nd graders play rhythms on boomwhackers!

Keyboard Lab in Music Class!



This week and next many of our students at RES & SMS are getting hands-on experience playing electric pianos in music class!   We’ve learned the names of the notes on the keyboard, and we’ve worked on basic piano playing technique.  These instruments are also a wonderful conduit towards playing with dynamics,  staying in tempo and reading simple sheet music.  It’s also tons of fun to play along with apps like Garage Band and Piano Maestro.   Check em out!
