Jackson Partner: The Music Studio at Vinings. If your student is interested in private music lessons in your home or at The Music Studio at Vinings, please click here for a special offer.
MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH
We are having a very musical March in Music Class! Each grade level music class is going very well. Please take a moment this month to share your musical experiences with your student. If you currently sing or play an instrument, I am sure that your student knows. What about your music history? Did you formerly sing or play an instrument? In a choir? In an orchestra? On Stage? With a ROCK band? Sharing your experiences with your student will spark curiosity and inquiry!
Mrs. Kelly's first grade music class performed their original compositions for their classmates!
PRESIDENTS ON PARADE
Congratulations to Mrs. Hess' second grade class on their class production: Presidents on Parade! This program allowed students to learn and teach about the history of American Presidents through speaking, singing, acting, and costume! The students looked and sounded amazing... Thank you Mrs. Hess for your dedication to student learning.
A Great Semester We are having a great semester in music class. Our kindergarten, first and second graders are busy trying new classroom instruments and singing great songs! Third and Fourth Grade are working on drumming triplets and sixteenth notes and our fifth graders are preparing for Dear Edwina JR, our spring musical production! Main campus students are enjoying keyboards and music technology in our keyboard lab. First and second grade will be trying recorder this semester, and main campus students will try guitar, xylophones, steel drums, and both campuses will continue with percussion.
Quaver Music comes to Jackson!!! I am excited to announce that our school has subscribed to QUAVER MUSIC!!! Quaver Music is an interactive online music curriculum that provides our students with thousands of learning instructional components in the classroom and allows our students access to our music classroom from home! This awesome addition to our music program was purchased by our Warren T. Jackson Partner: The Music Studio at Vinings. We appreciate their dedication to our Jackson Musicians. Students can use a generic student login/password combination or they can create their own. The generic login students can use to access quavermusic.com is wtjmusic and the password is jackson. I know students will enjoy the features that quaver music will allow them to access from their home device.
