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.

Final Podcast & have a great summer!

Hi everyone! This is my last post for the 2016-2017 school year. We had a great time learning together in the music room! To end the year, the music tech team thought it would be amazing to share our final podcast with Dolvin favorite, Graham Hepburn, Quaver in Quaver's Marvelous World of Music. The kids had an incredible time. I only wish we could have had a few more minutes! We look forward to more podcasts with next year's music tech team to keep you in the loop for all music room related activities. Until then.... have a happy, and wonderful summer!!!! (Check out the Teacher's special end of the year video for the students below the podcasts at the bottom of this post!)

Feburary Updates

Hi everyone! A few updates from the music department. The first grade musical was held last Thursday and was a huge success. The 1st grade students and teachers made the entire event a magical evening. Next up is Kindergarten! The date has been set for March 23rd at 6:00 pm. Please go ahead and mark your calendars.

If you were not in the loop, I was the lucky person selected to "TakeOver" the Fulton County Schools Instagram page. I posted a series of photos and videos to tell the story of what being an educator looks like from my perspective. If you aren't currently following Fulton County on Instragram or Twitter, now is the time.

Speaking of social media! If you want constant, in the moment updates, please remember to follow me on Twitter (@EndicottSpot) and Instagram (@dolvinmusic).

We will be posting a special podcast this week with music tech team students wrapping up our old music unit on melody and harmony and includes a special interview with Mrs. McMahan from the Dolvin Discovery Lab!

Next week, we have a super HUGE surprise guest! Stay tuned to find out just who it will be!

If you want to know where I have been, I just finished some amazing presentations at the Georgia Music Educators Conference in Athens, GA where I held sessions on App Smashing and Project Based Learning in Music. This week, I am traveling to San Antonio, TX to present on personalized learning in music to the members of TI:ME (Technology Integration in Music Education) at their national conference. Follow my journey on social media!

Until then...
