SME Music


Now that we are back from our Christmas break, all grades at SME will start a unit that I do where we learn about all of the different musical instruments. We start with some science; Learning how sounds are made and what makes some notes sound higher and some sound lower.

After that we have a class dedicated to a certain family or group of instruments. We start with the string family, then move through woodwinds (flutes, clarinets, saxophones), then brass, and finally the percussion family. These lessons are always a lot of fun. Make sure to ask your children what instruments they saw today!
