9/8/16 Welcome to First Grade Music!  First graders will continue to explore with their singing voices, building on the skills we learned in Kindergarten.  Students will be encouraged to sing in a gentle, healthy voice.  We will be doing a lot of work with solfege (do, re, mi, fa, sol...).  First graders focus on the notes "sol", "mi" and "la".  Solfege helps students more accurately match pitch with their voice.  The notes we learn also have accompanying hand signs that help students visualize the pitch moving higher and lower.  Check out the file at the bottom of the page that shows the hand signs! Please do not hesitate to contact myself with any questions/concerns.
