    Instructor: Stephanie Trinneer

    Welcome to music at John Rogers Elementary, where learning sounds great!

    This year in music, students will be singing, playing various types of instruments, moving and listening to music, reading and writing music, as well as creating and improvising. Students will work with others and alone to explore, learn about, and perform the various elements of music.

    Kindergarteners and first graders will be exploring pitch with voice and instruments as well as learning about beat and rhythm. Second graders will explore creativity through improvisation and composition. Third graders can look forward to learning how to play the recorder. Fourth and fifth graders will also be learning to play our new classroom set of ukuleles, as well as taking part in Seattle Symphony's Link Up program!

    Please join us in the Rogers gym on Friday, December 16th at 12:15 for our all-school and community sing-along! We will be singing songs of the season as well as traditional songs from around the world.

    Mrs. Blumhagen and Mrs. Trinneer have taught a dance unit to all students.  We will be showcasing  some folk and social dances from around the world from our unit at Rogers Heritage Night January 26th from 5:30 to 7:30!

    Both The Otter Choir and The Golden Otter Choir will be performing at the all-school and community sing-along on Friday, December 16th at 12:15. It is our school pajama and crazy hat day, so we will wear fun p. j.s instead of our usual black and white clothes.
