Distance Learning in the Music Classroom

Music is powerful. It can inspire us, uplift us, and bring us joy, happiness, and peace. My hope is that during this time you, and your family, would find a way to incorporate music into your lifestyle. Have music playing around the house. Dance and sing while doing chores. Make up your own songs about the things you're doing.

 

One of my favorite things about music is that it creates community. My favorite lessons to teach are when the students are using what we've learned to work together to create a musical performance. Every student has a different and wonderful idea, and I love seeing how all the ideas in a group come together to make something beautiful and wonderful. Since we are all learning in different locations, making music as a class is not possible at this time, but it is something you can do at home with your family. I encourage you to have fun, and find ways to make life musical during this time.

 

All assignments for my class will be posted by grade level under the "Assignments" tab on the left. 

 

There is also a list of fun links on the "Music Enrichment" tab that you can check out to keep working on your music skills from home - these links aren't graded assignments, they're just for fun!

 

Parents/Guardians, please read the assignment expectations with your student as there may be a part you play in submitting an assignment to me via email.

 

Thank you for your support in your child's education during this new way of learning. Stay safe, stay healthy, and keep making music.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Keister
