What's going on in  music? 
As of 11/29/21

We are beginning to learn Jingle Bells on the ukulele!  4-5 will do it on keyboard as well.  Last week we took a quiz on things we have learned in music .  Here are the questions with the answers.


  1. Open means no left hand Fingers.


  1. “Gorillas Can’t Eat Anchovies” is to help us remember the names of the  Strings .


  1. C2 is the coordinates of the note D.


  1. E0 is the coordinates of the note E.


  1.  A3 means A string 3rd FRET.


  1.  When strings are open, they rest on the bridge and the NUT.


  1.  The thumb of your fretting hand is usually on the back of the NECK.


  1. The BEAT keeps us together.


  1.  When you “see” the ledger line the note is C.


  1. Hollow headed HALF NOTES get 2 beats.





Are you interested in purchasing a ukulele for home use?

1. I'm always willing to check out anything you find.  FB Marketplace always has some used ones.

2. Amazon has a LOT of options.  Some brands that are worth consideration are Kala (and Makala; same co.), Cordoba, Fender, Donner, Mitchell, Kmise, Mahalo, and Huawind.

3. There are 3 Local Stores that carry them:
George's Music on Rt. 4 in Torrington
The Music Shoppe and Guitar Center, both on Queen Street in Southington.


 

Music Room Charter

How can we all stay on the RIGHT side of the mood meter?

*I will come into the music room 

calmly and quietly.

*I will raise my hand and wait to be called on.

*I will treat myself and others with 

kindness, grace, and respect.

*I will try to imagine how others feel (empathy).

*I will touch the instruments and other classroom materials only when given permission by the teacher.

*I will sing or play only after the count off.

*I will stop singing or playing after the cut off.

*I will sing and play my best at all times.

*I will make choices that keep myself and others safe.
