Fifth graders will begin the year reviewing the building blocks of music and understanding the relationship between printed musical symbols and their auditory representation. The students will learn how to explore a music technology program called Quaver that will allow them to create their own musical ideas on several different platforms. Students will learn more about music history, instrument families, and music composition so that they can streamline the information into their own creation.
Quaver Music QuaverMusic.com is a great place to start – an interactive virtual world that gives your child the freedom to create, explore, and learn about music in a safe, age-appropriate world they will love. Teachers use QuaverMusic.com to distribute assignments and reinforce lesson objectives with musical games and quests. The site is free to students at home or in the classroom – so they can continue to foster a love of music wherever they are.
