    Vocal Music
           This year, your child will be participating in music class designed to foster lifelong appreciation of music through active music making.  The sequenced music instruction will help your child develop musical skills and understanding, using music of various styles from the United States and around the world.  In addition to developing specific musical skills, your child's studies in other areas will be enhanced by instruction that links concepts across the curriculum.
          Reinforcement of the children's music learning can take place at home.  Consider listening to music together and talking about it.  Ask your child to share songs learned in music class.  Attend local concerts to help foster appropriate audience behavior.  These experiences will help make music meaningful at school, at home, and in the community.
          I am looking forward to working with your child.  I hope the experience in music proves to be a positive one in your child's school life this year.  Please feel free to e-mail or call me at school if there is any matter which you would like to discuss.
