Please welcome our Music teacher:

Welcome to Discovery Music
as we discover and create together for the JOY of learning while empowering Arts Education!
Music lessons are carefully and specifically designed for each grade level through:
CA State Music Standards, Multiple Intelligences and 7 Habits of Happy Kids.
The Theory of Multiple Intelligences is a theory of intelligence that differentiates it into specific (primarily sensory) "modalities", rather than seeing intelligence as dominated by a single general ability.
The 7 Habits of Happy Kids of The Leader In Me:
Students have weekly 30 minute music classes. The curriculum will explore different styles of music including from around the world broadening the students global music education. Focusing on singing and movement all students will also learn to read and or play music, at their grade level, and learn beats and rhythms on African drums such as the Djembe.
3rd grade will be learning the recorder where 4th and 5th will learn beginning piano skills.
Specific information per grade level regarding updates, assignments and concerts will be found through the grade level title on the side bar menu.
Every month the entire school learns a Patriotic Song, with movement, which is sung at the last Flag Salute
of the month. Please locate the side bar menu with the title Patriotic Song of the Month to find the flag salute date, lyrics and audio for students to practice at home as well as teachers refreshing their memories in their classrooms.
Discovery Elementary is blessed to have music education in every classroom during the school day as well as a Choir and Musical Theatre program after school!
Discovery Singers and Discovery Players have opportunities to perform through out the school year and are programs at fees less than the community to support Arts Education! Please help your singer and/or actor locate the Discovery Singers and Discovery Players title on the side bar menu.
This is going to be a FABULOUS MUSICAL year!
