A little bit about the music classroom:
In music class students will sing, move, listen, imitate, explore, experience, analyze, classify, create, share, perform, notate, read, improvise, cooperate, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!! We strive to create innovative, engaging lesson plans which include singing, playing instruments, and moving in each of our lessons. Music is important here at Dolvin Elementary. Studies show that students who receive music perform better on tests involving reading, math, problem solving, and logical thinking.

The music department is teaming up with the fourth grade science teachers to aid in an inclusive study on sound and vibrations. As a part of the unit, each 4th grade student is required to construct an instrument. Below you will find the requirements for the project and a helpful link with a series of ideas. Their instrument must be from "previously used" or found objects and must change pitch. Please e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns about this project.

Spring chorus members also have the exciting opportunity to perform at the Gwinnett Arena for the Gwinnett Gladiator's hockey team on Saturday, January 26th. Ticket order forms can be found here and are due on Wednesday, January 23rd. We will be one of 3 schools performing God Bless America. Lyrics and a music track for home practice can be found on our chorus edmodo site. If you are new to chorus and need directions on how to join edmodo, please e-mail me for specifics. We will hold a Wednesday and Friday morning practice to prepare for the performance this coming up Saturday.
For students not in chorus, the Gwinnett Arena is holding Dolvin Night on Saturday, January 26th. We hope you can come out and support your chorus friends. Dolvin will have a section blocked off for us to sit together so you can come out and have some fun with your friends! If enough tickets sell, some of the proceeds will come back to Dolvin. Please let me know if you have any questions.
