Welcome to Music Class!
It's the last week of school! This week we'll all be hearing a fun story about instruments and their sounds. We'll also be learning about the orchestra conductor and how he or she does their job.
This begins with watching the video link for the story The Remarkable Farkle McBride. Video link for The Remarkable Farkle McBride. Then there are two short lesson videos on sound words, and conducting. If you'd like to explore more on these topics, there are a few extras you can do. You can do as few or as many of these extras as you would like.
I miss you all, and I hope that you can enjoy your upcoming summer break. I look forward to the time we can all be together again.
If you have any questions, or would just like to say "hi", you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
