We are up to the first 5 notes now in 5th grade band. For the next couple of months, we will mainly focus on learning songs that incorporate these 5 notes. This week, Fifth graders will be introduced to the Band Royalty program which we will use to track individual student progress in their lesson books. They will have various exercises from their books to play, and we are looking to have note accuracy, correct rhythms and dynamics, and a steady beat.

5th Grade Band is off to a great start! We are focusing on the first 3 notes, and playing songs with whole notes and half notes. We will be adding quarter notes and quarter rests this week. Each week we also study vocabulary and rhythms. This weeks vocabulary includes whole notes/rests, half notes/rests, quarter notes/rests, and breath mark. Our rhythm studies focus is on whole and half notes and rests.
