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-eight 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 singing songs of limited range appropriate to a young child voice and use their head voice. 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, singing and hand movement.
These students will use recorders, 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.
