A Note  from Ms. Herrmann for October 2019


In music class at MSKC, the students engage in an 8-part musical workout each class. The outline of the workout is as follows: Vocal Warm-up, Echo/Call & Response Song, Simple Song, Arioso Singing, Movement Exploration, Movement for Form and Expression, Movement with the Beat, and a “Songtale” to end class. Each class, we use different songs/activities to explore each of these 8 parts of the musical workout, with the goal of students becoming more and more “tune-ful,” “beat-ful,” and “art-ful,” as they progress throughout the year. I have loved hearing each child's singing voice and watching them interact musically, and I’m looking forward to a great year!
