WELCOME TO MUSIC EDUCATION!!
Hello Legacy Loins, I’m Mrs. Benita Smith. Welcome to Legacy music at Legacy Elementary School. I have been teaching for twenty-nine years in the music field. My appreciation for music has propelled me to work in chorus, orchestra, and band. I’m presently teaching grade K-5th.
In Kindergarten -2nd grades the student's will work on rhythmic musical skills using percussion instruments. The students will learn the difference between pitch and non-pitch instruments.
In 3rd-5th grades students will participate and demonstrate rhythmic patterns, using rhythmic sticks, dancing and hand movement. Also, this semester the student will be learning how to play a keyboard.
These students will use percussion instruments, ukuleles and keyboards to demonstrate note values, rhythmic patterns, and playing simple songs. The student will examine and use critical thinking to process and describe how they can transfer their musical knowledge to other performance characteristics.
State requires students K-5th grade to be able to classify orchestral and band instruments as strings, woodwinds, brass, or percussion.
Thank you for visiting music at Legacy.
