Music Instructor- Thomas Satterfield
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 in grades 1-5 have weekly 45 minute music classes. TK and Kindergarten 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.
Every month the entire school learns a Patriotic Song and a & Habits Song, with movement, which is sung at the Pep Rally
the last Friday of the month. Please locate the sidebar menu with the title Patriotic & 7 Habit Songs of the Month to find the pep rally 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 program after school!
This is going to be a FABULOUS MUSICAL year!
