MUSIC

WELCOME TO MUSIC AT JES!

 

All homerooms in grades K through 5 participate in general music classes each week.  Students learn about the elements of music (beat, melody, rhythm, harmony, texture, dynamics, tempo, pitch, form, active listening, timbre, composition) by singing, playing pitched and non-pitched instruments, using technology (iPads), and using other manipulatives (rhythm cards).

 

Students in fourth and fifth grades, who really enjoy singing and performing, are invited to audition for the Jefferson Elementary School Chorus.  This year we have 50 students participating.

 

Fifth grade students also have the option of joining the Jefferson Elementary School Band.  Thirteen students are participating.  (3 flutes, 3 clarinets, 2 saxophones, 4 trumpets, and 1 percussion)

 

Chorus and Band will be performing throughout the school year.  Watch for program times on our website calendar.
