DUCT TAPE AND PIANOS
Last August, I made this large faux piano with black duct tape and a black marker. I needed it to help show the students where their fingers should be placed on the keys. It worked out okay, until I was able to borrow an ELMO for the classroom. This ELMO helped change my teaching tremendously because it allowed the students to see where my fingers where placed on the keyboard.
Personally, I believe every classroom--even music-- should have an ELMO at their fingertips!
Nashville Symphony, tomorrow!
I am looking forward to our field trip tomorrow with students. All the students have been asked to dress up and experience The Nashville Symphony. http://www.nashvillesymphony.org/main.taf?p=5,12,2,1,1
The Beat Seat
This week in class, I have introduced 8th notes and rest. We used the beat seats (syllable seat), along with manipulatives to understand the quarter note and quarter rest. We had a great time! I love my job!
Welcome to Mrs. Folsom's music web site. Did you know that by being involved in music class, you can learn several things that can help you in real life? When you study music you learn math, language, history, reading skills and science. Music teaches teamwork, discipline, responsibility and helps build self esteem. I hope this site increases your knowledge in music, math, science, history and reading.
