In the Music Room

  • In our class, we focus on the big 6 musical ideas: singing, playing instruments, listening, reading music, writing music, and moving! We are fortunate to have many wonderful instruments to play here at Fort McCoy, including tubanos, boomwhackers, Orff xylophones and metallophones, baritone ukuleles, bells, tone chimes, recorders, and many more percussion instruments! We listen to music of many different styles, from Beethoven to the Beatles. We are learning how to read rhythms, write our own music, and perform! We play circle games, learn folk dances, and many other movement activities.
