String Update and Assignment

Fourth Graders
4A, 4B, 4C:  All fourth grade students worked on their grade level song, the Surprise Symphony.  (Scroll down for a video!)  They also continued to practice the Final Countdown.  It's a tricky one, but they have come such a long way and are more than halfway done with the piece!

Assignment for 4th graders:
  • D Scale
  • Surprise Symphony
  • Final Countdown 
  • Strings Will Rock You

Fifth Graders
5A and 5B:  The fifth grade students tried to see how well they remember Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  We played it from memory as a warm up, then discussed what variations means.   The students will be able to compose their own variations to perform at the spring concert, either alone or with a small group.   I can't wait to hear what they come up with!  The students also rehearsed Final Countdown.

Assignment for 5th graders:
  • D Scale
  • Final Countdown
  • Start to work on your Twinkle variations!  
  • Strings Will Rock You
Here are some 4th graders practicing their accompaniment part for the Surprise Symphony - I can't believe they just started this tune!
