Music Compositions coming home

Parents/Guardians –
You should see a music assignment come home this week. This assignment was a chance for your child to write their own melodic composition using the known pitches of Mi and Sol Students were asked to use previously learned concepts to create a song to sing using these pitches. They were then asked to sing each measure to Mr. Weller, and finally place the song onto the music staff. This was a review of concepts from the last year and is being used as a diagnostic assessment this year.

Before you sign the paper, please have your child:
– clap & say the rhythm with rhythm language (du & du-day)
– name the notes (quarter note, 8th notes, etc)
– Sing the song using hand signs and a singing voice (more air)
– make sure ALL the work looks complete.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I have attached the assignment to this email in case you don’t see it come home or you would like extra practice for your child.
