"Ode to Joy" is a tricky melody! It incorporates all 6 notes that we learned on the guitar as well as string crossing. Ask your student what string crossing means! The 6th graders have done an outstanding job of pointing out patterns in the melody that helped us learn the music very quickly! I am so proud of all of the hard work they have put in this week!
Monday will be our final day exploring beginning guitar. Students will take a two part assessment to show all they have learned about the guitar on Monday. The written part of the test will contain fill in the blank, matching, true and false, and a diagram of a blank guitar, which students will be asked to label. The second half of the assessment will consist of a performance part. Students will be asked to play "Ode to Joy" individually on the guitar.
Be on the lookout for your musician's results from the guitar test to be on ParentPortal Monday night!
