Welcome to Ms. R's Music Classroom

My general music classes are founded in the fundamentals of ORFF which is a teaching philosophy that puts the child in charge of his/her own music-making. There are four stages that each child goes through in a unit of study: imitation, exploration, improvisation, and visualization. Students will learn how to improvise, compose, sing, play instruments and dance. However, while the music is the focus of the class, we also relate our activities to SEL targets and life skills that students can apply to outside of the music classroom.
