3rd Grade Chorus
Classroom Music for all....
Lancashire Elementary adheres to the Brandywine and Delaware State mandated music curriculum. All lessons taught in the classroom will be aligned to the National Standards for Music Education. Each grade level at Lancashire will receive music instruction in the general music classroom once a week. Class sessions are 45 minutes in length. (See the General Music Class Schedule above) The PLC schedule gives me an opportunity to spend a little more time with a few classrooms.
To contact Ms. Valente, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you need to speak with me about a class or a program, the best time to contact me is between 12:15 and 12:45 any day of the week, or from 1:00 - 1:30 on Wednesdays.
Students in kindergarten music are introduced to varied concepts and skill development through listening, moving, chanting, singing and playing.
First grade students will begin to develop skills previously introduced and become familiar with more specific concepts as they grow more comfortable with sounds and music symbols.
In second grade the children will continue to develop their skills in all nine standards and show some
proficiency in the early indicators of melodic and rhythmic concepts.
Third grade students will begin to show proficiency in four of the nine state standards as they demonstrate evidence of artistic attainment, while they continue at the developmental level in the rest of the music curriculum. Students at this grade level also begin to incorporate the soprano recorder in the general music lessons. Third grade students will have the opportunity to advance their skills and understandings in music if they choose to participate in the Third Grade Chorus. The Chorus will perform in our Winter and our Spring concerts. All students receive music once each week with their homeroom in General Music, while Chorus members meet for an additional 35 minutes every Friday.
Fourth grade students will just begin to develop Music Standard Nine (Understanding music in relation to diverse cultures, times and places) while they find they are becoming proficient at singing and performing on classroom instruments. Improvisation (Music Standard 3) will continue to be in the developmental stage, along with their growth in music reading, composition and evaluation. All fourth grade students have the opportunity to choose to participate in extra musical activities during the instructional week. They can be part of the Fourth and Fifth Grade Combined Chorus, the Instrumental Music (Band) Program, or the Orchestral (String) program. All fourth grade students receive music in a classroom situation once a week for 45 minutes.
Mrs. Georgia Black is the Instrumental teacher and Ms. Nicole Veator is the String Teacher. Band students meet with Mrs. Black once each week for Full Band rehearsal and an additional time each week for a small group lesson. Orchestral (string) students also meet for a full orchestra rehearsal once each week and an additional time for a small group lesson.
I take on the responsibility of being the Choral Director at Lancashire Elementary School. I meet with my Choral students once each week for a 35 -45 minute choral rehearsal. Occasionally I will meet the choral groups for additional rehearsal time when we are approaching a performance.
Fifth grade music class will continue to focus on all nine standards of music education. Many of the skills will continue to be developed and reach proficiency, but the students will be encouraged to progress from the Understanding/Comprehension level of learning to the Analyzing/Evaluating/Creating level.
The additional opportunities for students to extend their development to more of the heightened artistic engagement step will be made available through the Choral, Instrumental and String programs offered at Lancashire. All fifth grade students receive music in a classroom situation once a week for 45 minutes. Chorus rehearsals take place on Wednesdays for an additional 45 minutes. Fifth graders who participate in the Band program receive instruction with a small group for 30-35 minutes on Tuesday or Wednesday and also meet for a full band rehearsal for 45 minutes on Wednesday afternoons.
Fifth Grade students who participate in the String program meet for a full orchestra rehearsal on Mondays and they also meet for a small group rehearsal on the same day of the week.
