Sixth Grade General Music is the only general music class offered at the middle school level. It meets for one trimester opposite Art and Computer class. In this trimester we learn about three music styles: Blues, Rock, and Rap.
During the trimester we sing, listen to/analyze music, create music through composing/arranging, dance, and play instruments (World Drumming, piano, and acoustic guitar). When possible, we will have a guest musician visit to perform for the class. We will also learn about the elements of music (melody, harmony, rhythm, form, timbre, texture). Students will research a popular artist of their choice. We do not perform in any school concerts.
