Grade 4/5 Music Tech

This year has been exciting because we started our Music Tech 2.0 class. This course is an addition to our general music class. It is different because the classroom is set up with Mac computers instead of tradional instruments. The students learn about music notation, rhythm, staff reading in both the treble and bass clef, music listening skills, music history, and composition. The students learn about all of these concepts through a collect of websites and music programs that are downloaded onto the computer. Some of these programs include GarageBand, MuseScore2, Staff Wars, and Chrome Music Lab. The class is run to encourage students to ask questions and that mistakes are ok, because we can learn from them.

Here are some of the links that we use in class:
