    Rogers Music

    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.

    Kindergartners 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 classroom set of ukuleles!

    Our 2018-2019 Golden Otter Choir will be auditioning students in grades 3 through 5 in September.  Choir practices will begin in October. Third, fourth, and fifth graders may also join Percussion Club by coming to our meetings Mondays at lunch recess. Finally, we say Aloha to fourth and fifth graders in the Ukulele Club at lunch recess on Thursdays.

    We must look forward to the time when all people in the lands are brought together through singing, and when there is a universal harmony.
