3rd Grade Music
As part of our music curriculum at All Saints the third graders will be learning how to play the recorder through a program entitled Recorder Apprentice. Recorder Apprentice is a motivational method for students to learn the recorder and to learn about the Renaissance time period. Students learn Renaissance dance melodies, rounds, and study in improvisation and composition. Students track their journey through six challenge assessment lines. The third graders are working very hard!
The third grade students will prepare a song on their recorder for the Spring concert on April 24th. Parents and guests are welcome and encouraged to attend!
During the month of February, the All Saints students participated in a keyboard lab during Music Class. Students were able to learn and explore the organization of the keyboard, while mastering several keyboard songs. This unit is part of the Cedar Rapids Metro Catholic Schools fine arts courses. The keyboards rotate between the elementary schools during the school year. It is a great opportunity for students to learn basic keyboard skills!
