Musicianship: Sight singing, Ear Training and Theory:

Our Musicianship class will give students the knowledge and skills serving as a foundation for a love of music and for growth in any field of the industry. Students will study famous Halloween based repertoire to solidify concepts like scales, pitch and rhythm recognition and writing, chord building, chord structures, harmonic structure, and song forms to name a few. 

Music History Technique and Repertoire:

Students will study melodies, chords, instruments, and song forms from Composers and Artists ranging from the Ancient Greeks, Bach, Sailors from the High Seas, CCW, Michael Jackson, and Imagine Dragons. All of this study will culminate in a fall driveway and digital performance on Halloween. 

Songwriting and Composition

Students will develop writing skills aligning with grade level standards through songwriting. Students will compose songs in a Digital Audio Workspace like Bandlab, Soundtrap, or Gargeband. 

Musician Maker Space: 

We'll be retracing 40,000 years of music history to recreate some of the first instruments used by men in a quest to understand the physics of sound and how the instruments we know today have come to be created. 

Grow Lovingly: Our SEL framework

Using Grow Lovingly, students will build and practice self-awareness, communication, and mindfulness practices. Students will demonstrate emotional intelligences through mindful communication and the 5 key emotions that are often driving forces behind ours and others' actions
