Fourth Grade Music - An Overview
In Fourth Grade Music students will review the elements of music they have learned until now and they will expand on these concepts using classroom instruments. The elements they will focus on include Rhythm, Melody, Harmony, Form, Expression, and Timbre. Students will begin the recorder - how to create a warm and pleasing sound, and how to play simple songs using the notes B, A, G. They will learn how to read notes written on the treble clef music staff, and will apply their knowledge of rhythm and expression as they learn their songs. There will also be a 4th grade show this year.
