Welcome!

9/8/16  Welcome to third grade music!  Third grade is a big year in music as students will begin playing recorder!  Recorder playing will start in class sometime in October.  For 2-3 weeks recorders will stay in school before being sent home, that way students will be able to play 1-2 tunes when they begin to bring them home!  Recorders are expected to be brought to every music class.   At the beginning, third graders will focus on three notes, G A B. We will work on helping every student achieve a clear tone by using a warm, gentle stream of air. In addition to recorder, third graders will continue to sing in every class, often times singing a song before we play it on recorder.  The use of 'head voice' vs. 'chest voice' will explored.  Please do not hesitate to contact myself with any questions/concerns. bboisclair@westerly.k12.ri.us
