Blog: Emily’s Music Blog

A friend of mine from college has started a new blog, Emily’s Music Blog. Check it out! Especially if you are into music and education (or even if you’re not, as I anticipate great things to come).

Welcome to my Blog! I decided to start a Music Education blog.  I see so many great ideas on facebook, pinterest, and other friends blogs, I decided it was time to start my own.  Brief overview of myself: I and in my third year of teaching general music for grades 1-6.  I also teach 5-6 grade chorus and have a 5-6 grade Glee Club and a 5-6 Grade “Orffestra”.   We do a few concerts and a musical every year in chorus.  All classes are focused on making music fun and interesting while leading students to be musically literate and being musical, tuneful people for their entire life- whether they end up being performers, or just those who sing Happy Birthday at a party.  We read music using solfege and curwin handsigns as well as the Kodaly based rhythm syllables.  We use orff instruments often in class and clear the room for movement and dancing every week.  Stay tuned for great ideas and feel free to comment and leave your own!
