Aloha to my Piney Branch Ohana.  I really miss seeing your smiling faces everyday.  I hope you are making music a part of your daily life!  You can do this by moving to music with a steady beat, listening to different kinds of music and discussing it with your family, or using some of the links I am providing here to keep you going!  The music standards for the 3rd Quarter are attached, and all of them have been met.  Remember that these are always ongoing and you can expanding your skills through practice.

Here are some websites where you can find good music activities and lessons for free!

Kennedy Center Education - Great lessons for all ages.

Music Play Online - Music games

The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra - Listen to several different pieces and learn about the instruments

Word Synth - This is a fun way to create your own music!

Classics for Kids - Several games to reinforce and build upon what your students have already learned in music class.

Smart Music - I have created an "assignment list" so that students can practice sight-reading notes, practice singing song, etc.  This list is a work in progress and it will grow.  It's a really amazing tool that Smart Music has made for free through June!  To log in you will need a user name. Our group is "Piney Branch Ohana".  The password is PBOhana#1.  I hope to see you there.

Hopefully these will get you started.  I will most more in the days to come.  For my drama students, why not teach your family one of our fun improvisation games?  Choir, keep practicing your songs!  You can find good recordings online. 

Remember the order of notes on the music scale for treble clef! E G B D F (the lines) and F A C E for the spaces!
Practice singing your solfege scale "Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti, Do"

Here are some fun music worksheets!
