We started off our week with our very first guitar performance quiz. The song students were required to perform in small groups was called "Spanish Theme Song". This song incorperated the notes E, F and G that we have been working so hard on. I was very impressed with each and every performance! After given a few days worth of class time, students performed the quiz on Wednesday in class and did a fabulous job! Be sure to check out ParentPortal to see how your student did!
On Thursday we began to add more notes to our musical toolbox. Students learned about the notes B, C, and D, where they are located on the musical staff, and how to play these notes on the guitar. We used an application on the Ipads called "Flashnote Derby" to practice our notation reading skills. Each student was given an Ipad to work with. Check out some pictures of us working with these app below!
We will wrap up our guitar unit by the end of next week. Our time will be focused on learning one final song "Ode to Joy" by Beethoven. The final guitar test will take place one week from Monday (3/23). Be on the lookout for study materials to come home next Thursday!
