Class Experience

Students will be able to keep a steady beat at various tempos. 
The students will be able to clap quarter notes,  and eighth notes. 
They will be able to read rhythms and clap the rhythm cards. 
The students will be able to play combination patterns with quarter notes and eighth notes. 
They will be able to recognize and identify the symbols for quarter notes , eighth notes,  a quarter rest, treble clef, and the  music staff. 
The students will be able to pat quarter notes and eighth notes at the same time, using two hands. 
They will use rhythms chants with words that match the rhythms we are learning. 
This is a fully participatory class. Students are invited and encouraged to participate. 

I will screen share the rhythms sometimes to have the students clap what they see, after I have taught them how to read the rhythms.
They will "echo clap" the rhythms that I clap for them.

My teaching experience includes all types of student learning styles, and levels.
