Music Share 6.5.15 – At the Bottom of the Sea

Toward the end of the year we have a bit of choice time to celebrate and this usually means.. singing games!  Here’s a favorite of many… “At the Bottom of the Sea”.  A GoPro camera strapped to a little fish makes for a fun video.

Music Share 5.15.15: Texture in music and “The Prepared Piano”.

Today our 3rd graders learned about texture in music.  We talked about what the “avant garde” is and had some great discussion about what music can be!  Check out this short clip of our learners creating a “prepared piano”, in the style of avant garde composer, John Cage!

Last night our RES 4th grade chorus joined the middle schools and high school for the All-District Choral Concert at MMU.  The show was fantastic and it was the first time our performers were invited to join their older peers on stage, they did amazingly well!   Congrats to the 4th grade chorus and thanks to all for supporting this great event!
