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.

All 2nd graders should have received part assignments and/or a letter from the music department with information concerning our upcoming musical. Please reach out if you have any questions. Our performance will be November 19th at 6:30 PM. The doors will open at 6:00 PM. See you then!
Chorus students, please have auditions prepared and submitted by this Friday. I will send a message through Edmodo as well. I plan on making a copy of the CD for check-out. The CD will be available tomorrow morning. I hope this will help with formatting problems. If needed, I am in my room in the morning beginning at 7:10 to help students with auditions and other trouble spots.
Parent information about chorus polo shirts and upcoming December concerts will be coming your way shortly! Please let me know right away if you aren't on the e-mail list.

Dear second grade parents, Please note that we had to change our original performance date from November 12th to November 19th. We would also like to let you know that speaking roles have been selected both from the music department and the classroom. In efforts to keep students spirits high, please understand that we are only able to select 3 main character roles from each classroom. Your children are all very talented,which made the task rather difficult! While not everyone has the opportunity to talk in the microphone, we are happy to say that every child does have a special part, will wear a costume, and have their moment to shine on stage. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Your teachers will contact you this week with those who are speaking and need to create / find additional costumes.
In other news! I am happy to post two different interviews for you from the last two weeks. One with our Fulton County Vanguard Lead Coach, Heather Cox, about personalized learning my classroom and the other with Quaver himself! Both offer a sneak peek into the music room and the type of learning your children are receiving. Take time to look them over and let me know if you have any questions!
