FLUTE CHOIR

Flute choir is an opportunity for players in the Concert Band and Wind Symphony, who are interested in participating, to learn techniques more specific to their instrument in a small group setting. Because of the range of experience in the players, we alternate easy to intermediate/advanced music.

K - 5TH GRADE MUSIC CLASS

K-5 Music classes are primarily singing classes. These classes perform in December and in May. 
Basic music concepts are covered as the songs are learned: dynamics, pitch, tempo, counting, listening, intervals, proper vocal placement, posture. 
Students learn to function as a group, supporting the desired presentation.
In the K-1 class, there is more movement with the music; and small musical instruments are used when appropriate to the song. Both classes are given music. While there are varying degrees of reading ability, the 2-5 class is expected to have the music in front of them each week. The concerts are performed by memory.
