Ms. Manning's Music Class
Welcome to Ms. Manning’s Music Class! Throughout the year, we will learn about music from many cultures and develop our understanding and appreciation of music. Music-making requires cooperation, respectful collaboration, and courage. In our classroom, we will nourish the creative spirit of each child, and bring awareness to the importance of each student’s role as an active participant within the group. Our motto is: Try Your Best!
Music class is built around the following academic standards:
1. Expression of Music: The demonstration of human thought and emotion through the medium of performance, which is a product of knowledge and skills gained in the study of music.
2. Creation of Music: The creation of music is the demonstration of learned skills in the composition, improvisation, and arranging of music
3. Theory of Music: The theory of music is the understanding of the distinctive language, conventions, mechanics, and structure of organized sound.
4. Aesthetic Valuation of Music: The value of music focuses on the knowledge needed to make an informed evaluation and to provide a well-thought-out critique about a musical piece. It also addresses the beauty, heart, and soul: the aesthetics of music.
