This week the 6th grade band will get sheet music for a "mystery piece" of music that we will perform in December. We have prepared and practiced some of the main themes of this mystery song. Later this week, students will listen to a recording of the song and we will predict what we think the real title is. Through studying a piece of music like this, we will discuss how a composer can create a mood, feeling, or image for the listener. We'll also be starting some holiday music within the next week or two.
The 6th grade band is off to a great start! We started the year reviewing the first 5 notes, and we played some songs and exercises from last year from the Essential Elements book. This week, we are studying the themes from a new piece of music we will perform at our concert in December.
