New Music for a New Year

I can’t believe it is already September 22nd! This has been my first opportunity to share what has been going on in the Music Room so far this year!

On September 12th our fifth graders led a wonderful Heroes Assembly (on day FIVE!!) for the entire Pine Glen Community to honor our Police Officers and Firefighters, as well as remember Thomas McGuiness who sadly lost his life on September 11, 2001. They did a wonderful job! You can see photos of this performance HERE and a short video of the Pine Glen School Song HERE.

Third Graders have begun to sign up for Violin lessons if they are interested. There is still time to sign up! Please visit Mrs. Conzano’s Blog for more information.

Fourth graders have begun to sign up for band instrument lessons. If you are interested please see Mr. Napeirkowski’s Blog for more info.

I have updated the Important Dates Page with all of our new concert dates for the year. Click HERE to visit that page.

In other news, the music room and the stage both have new music rugs!  All the students are enjoying it and so do I! Believe it or not, this rug will greatly enhance all of the students music lessons. Circle games stay in a circle, we can easily review lines and spaces of the staff, rhythm sticks aren’t quite so noisy, and so much more!

I have been greatly enjoying reconnecting with all of Pine Glen Students as well as getting to know all of the new smiling faces that walk through my door. Its going to be a great year!

 

 

Lexington Symphony visits Pine Glen

IMG_0433

Today four members of the Lexington Symphony visited Pine Glen School, and put on a performance/presentation for our third grade students. This visit was in preparation for our annual field trip to hear the Lexington Symphony play at the end of the month.

The students were a wonderful audience as the musicians discussed the different families of instruments in the orchestra, how their instruments worked, and what its like to be a musician in an orchestra. They also got a taste of the kinds of music they will hear at the concert. The students also had very thoughtful questions at the end of the presentation.

We are all excited to see the concert on the 22nd!

Another Halloween has passed…

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays, and it is very fun in the music room as well! We get to listen to spooky music, dance like skeletons, pretend to be witches, and make scary sounds with instruments (and that is only the beginning!) Here are a few highlights from Halloween week in the music room:

Room 107 performing Jack-O-Lantern:

Room 204 singing The Halloween Song:

Room 210 singing Halloween Night:

All of Pine Glen singing Witches Brew at 3rd annual Halloween Spooky Sing-Along:
