In grade 5 music there’s been a lot on our plate. We have worked on our singing and school spirit by learning and performing the OJCS anthem. We’ve also been pushing forward on the recorder and developing skills on the instrument. The students have all been working on exercises in the practice book, performing playing tests for the class, and creating a video of themselves playing the recorder. And of course we’ve been having fun along the way!
In Grade 5 music class, we have been doing many great things! We began the year with the students presenting on various musical topics to the class. It has been a really great experience as I have realized that there are a lot of keen musicians in the group who have a definite interest in developing as an artist. We will begin learning the recorder as a class in the near future. This is going to be great for the students to apply musical knowledge that they will have already learned at school and develop their own musicianship through the instrument. I hope the students are having as much fun classes I am. Let’s keep up the great work!
