Perfecting Rhythm Drawing

Uncategorized 1 Comment »

This week in 1st grade we have been studying what makes a perfect Ta, Ti-ti or Sh. There are so many things to think about. Which side does the stem go on? Should the note head be colored in or not?

We worked in pairs to make our very best examples. After one person drew their notes on the iPad then their partner checked for imperfections. Working together we created some fabulous examples!

In 3rd grade we’ve been starting the transition from our rhythmic note names (ta, ti-ti, and sh) to the “professional note names” (quarter note, eighth notes, and quarter rest). Apparently Sidney has a head start on the rest of the class! :)

Do you know the story of Hansel and Gretel?

We’ve been working on our lyrics for Teach Us Maybe and found this site to be really useful.

First Graders Songify Mrs. Muench’s Rules

1st grade 4 Comments »

Today in 1st grade we learned about the rules in the Music Room. There are only 3 rules. If you can follow Rule 3 then you will probably have the first 2 covered already. We used an app called Songify to turn our speaking into singing. You can listen to Rule 1 and Rule 3 below. Poor rule 2 got eaten by Mrs. Muench’s iPhone.

Rule 1

Rule 3

 

Good news! Rule 2 has been recreated by 1C!

Carly Rae Jepsen sang it first:
Call Me Maybe by B Muench on Grooveshark

 

Then Cookie Monster made it his own:

I am so excited to begin another year of music classes! I hope you all had a great summer vacation and are ready to come back and make some music.

Notating!

Uncategorized No Comments »

We’ve been working on our note names in 2nd grade. Recently Mrs. Muench set a challenge before the kids. Using iXylophone on theĀ  ipods the kids got to pick one song and notate it. It was very tricky! Mrs. Muench displayed the music created by the kids that was completed on the bulletin board.
