Musical Notes on Score
General Information
Hi! My name is Mrs. Baker. I am the music teacher at Mt. Airy School grades K-8. I welcome students to an exciting year of music which will include, playing instruments using the Orff approach, music theory, music appreciation and integrating the music standards with the academic content standards.
Students will be involved in music programs throughout the school year. I am looking forward to working with your child this year. I can be reached at this e-mail address: or call me at Mt. Airy School between the hours of 7:30 A.M-3:00 P.M.
Classroom Requirements
All students grades 4-8 are required to purchase a two pocket folder by the end of the first week. They are also required to bring their folder and pencil to each class. The folders are used for class assignments, assessments and other music information given out each quarter. The folders also allow the students to keep track of their music assignments and assessments. We will be writing extended responses, summary of composers, comparing and contrasting music genres, and evaluating performances and various styles of music. Students are required to know the four learning questions: What are you learnng? Why are your learning this? Is your work good, and how do you know it is good? How can you make it better?
Students grades 4-6 are required to purchase a recorder, a woodwind instrument that is blown. The cost of the recorder is $5.00. I purchase them because I can get the recorders at a discount and I am looking for a certain tone quality.
When students bring in their money they are purchased. The recorder is a requirement for music class and is incorporated in our music standards. The recorder is part of their music grade as well as singing, class participation, class assignments and homework.
