Wilcox - Fall of 2017

The students have been having a great time working with the recorders in the 3rd-5th grades at Wilcox. The 1st and 2nd grades started off learning new notes on their glockenspiels and have been busy singing and moving to our favorite Fall songs! Skin and Bones is the all time FAV!

The Little Mermaid comes to Ridgely! Fall of 2017!

The kids did a great job tonight on their presentation of "The Little Mermaid" .  The entire production was done by students except Pam Garcia, the music teacher directing.  We had art from the art classes and costume changing by Mrs. Hay & Mrs. Speciale's mom!!  I am so proud of them and know it will be a learning experience they will never forget! Great job guys!  A big thanks goes out to Cheryl Simon for helping me with the painting and drawing of the background scenery!

Ridgely & Wilcox January 2018

Happy New year everyone!  Music classes are off to a great beginning!  Bingo is in the air!  The kids love playing bingo but they are actually learning lots!  

Wilcox kids are learning their instrument families and identifying over 25 different instrument names and identifying them visually and aurally as well.  Very difficuclt but they love it and we make  it fun with a game!

Ridgely kids are learning the names and pictures of 25 different famous composers in music history. They are learning how to say all of their names ( hard stuff) and what the composer looked like.  We also are learning a few fun facts about several of them.
