Christmas Concert Practice
5th Grade General Music & Beginning Band
If you already have an instrument for your child, or are able to purchase or rent one, please contact me so I can focus on getting instruments for students without one. If you wish to purchase or rent an instrument for your child this year, please visit the Rental Suggestions link on the bottom left of this page. We have been working with Metropolitan Music from Seattle, and they have some amazing deals for parents for the year!

While Mrs. Morse is out on maternity leave, the 5th Grade Class is starting the year with Recorder Karate 2. They will continue to learn notes on the recorder, and work with notes and rhythms. Once Mrs. Morse has returned, the 5th grade class will start beginning band. Each student should be thinking of what instrument they would like to play for this and the coming years. When students start their band instruments, Mrs. Morse will take into consideration balance of the group, and numbers of kids playing each instrument. Mrs. Morse will also take into consideration things like mouth shapes, arm lengths, body sizes when it comes to playing certain instruments. (A child with short arms might have a hard time playing all the notes on a trombone because they may not be able to hit 7th position.)
