Kindergarten Songs and Instruments of the Orchestra 9-17-16

Kindergarten is a fun time of exploration and learning in music class.

We have been working on singing the following songs:

  • SURE Song
  • Five Little Ducks
  • Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • I Am Principled
  • Star Spangled Banner

Instrument Exploration

We are also exploring and demonstrating the various instruments of the Orchestra.  This week we explored the Brass Family (Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn and Tuba).  Soon we will be seeing and hearing the String Family (Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass).  The kids get a wonderful expression on their face when they first hear these instruments!

We are also getting a chance to play the hand drum and tambourines with our classmates.  We have a fun song with rhythm sticks where we listen and follow directions.

Please be sure to contact me with any concerns, questions or suggestions you have!
