Music

Musical Notes from Mrs. Hanson.

Music at Rose Hill Elementary is centered in student learning and participation. Mrs. Hanson’s goal is to create a life-time appreciation for Music and the Arts in each student. Through a blend of music pedagogies in the music classroom, students experience classical, contemporary and world music. Students learn to read music, sing, and play classroom instruments in music class. Students also create compositions, orchestrations and instrumental accompaniments using classroom Orff instruments such as xylophones and classroom percussion instruments. Students move to the steady beat, dance to music from many cultures and create their own improvised movements through body percussion and dance. Students experience performing for an audience through grade level musical performances and student led assemblies. Parents are invited to Mrs. Hanson’s Haiku/PowerSchool pages for more information regarding upcoming events, grading and grade level activities for the year.
