Do come in… Stay awhile… Join in the fun, and learn a lot too! Do Re Mi… is a unique introduction to music that brings the joy and love of music making to your First Grader. This course will bring music class to your child for the year, and it will be offered in 4 sequential semesters. During each 9-week course, learners will experience lessons aligned with the National Arts Standard for Elementary Music. All courses together will teach a comprehensive First Grade Music Curriculum. ...
Students will continue to learn what makes music - pitch (sol-mi), rhythm (ta and ti-ti), Form (AB and ABA), beat, emotion, and so much more. We will also learn many songs/chants and movements that will reinforce steady beat, pitch, language skills, physical coordination, math, science of sound and animals, different cultures, and kindness. A true musical treasure chest!
Hi - My name is Amy Spiess-Ki and I cannot wait to teach your child! I currently am also the music specialist in a School of the Arts for Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I am a certified music teacher who has taught over 20,000 children in just over 20 years! My classes are exciting, music-based, integrated, and imaginative. I strive to create child-focused lessons that are well-planned and well loved. A typical class is seen singing, moving, reading, playing, and listening to each other… all while learning the lesson’s goal and often integrating language, math, science, and social studies. I enjoy being with children, seeing the magic in every child I teach, and experiencing joyful music making together!
There is a monthly worksheet, that's it. But a little birdie told me that your child may want to sing their songs over and over again!
Please Make a Musical Box for your child. They will sometimes need the following: Something to shake (maraca, shaker egg, container with rice) Something to wave (scarf, shirt, small piece of material) Rhythm Sticks (or 2 pencils or chopsticks) Paper Writing Utensil (pencil and crayons) The Incredible You! For a very special occasion, your child will need: Something round to write the music notes with (skittles, grapes, cheerios, etc) Stuffed Animal
I will be assessing your child. Usually this will be informal - a call and response solo, an answer to a question, the way they moved their body. I continually assess through each class, but the students are not aware of that. They just think music is fun. As for formal assessments, I will send a monthly worksheet home that will assess exactly where your child is too. Oh yes, and there is always the skittles/grapes music notation to show me high and low sounds.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
