The grade 6’s have spent most of September learning about major scales, particularly the C+ scale. Now that we have learned it, we will experiment with using this knowledge to compose some music and put it on Garage Band! This will be a learning experience for me as well as the students! In fact, I’m thinking I will learn some things about Garage Band from them!

This month in Grade Six music we will be reviewing note names and rhythms and beginning a unit on major scales! Near the end of the month we will be having a written and playing test, where students will write, sing, and play major scales in various forms. A study sheet will be sent home before the test. If your child has not yet brought their recorder back to school, please make sure they do so!
