Welcome to Music Class!!
Hello Patriots, I am Kimberly Collins, the new music specialist at Jefferson Elementary! I am excited to continue educating students about music while helping each child to realize his or her own ‘super powers’. Jefferson music students will receive sequential learning experiences to encourage creative play and a lifelong love for the arts.
Students will receive grades each quarter based on the following National and State Music Standards:
1) Perform: Reading, writing, and performing music.
2) Create: Creating their own songs individually and as a group.
3) Respond: Actively listen and describe a variety of music styles
4) Connect: Relate music to their lives and the world around us.
Orff-Schulwerk along with other music teaching approaches will prepare students for middle school performing groups. I hope you enjoy a year of learning and fun in music class at JES!
