Kyffin General Music News    

1st grade--We are engaged in learning our first two solfege syllables, so and mi.  Next we will learn what a time signature is.    

2nd grade – Great job discovering four sixteenth notes beamed together (students call it “co-lo-ra-do”).  The dotted half note is next and there are some nice songs, but they are more challenging for seven and eight year old people.

3rd grade -- Third graders are learning a new melody note that is a step below low la (low so).

4th grade – We have been Circle Waltzing as we learn a new time signature.    

5th grade – “A Little Dance in D” is the name of the song we are learning to play on xylophones. 

6th grade –The Sixth Grade Performance of A Magical Mix-up is coming soon.  Mark your calendar:  Tuesday, May 1st, 3:30PM.  For details, please click on “Documents” in the left hand column and download “6th Grade Play 2018 flyer_letter.”
