Music at CSDB
The Music Program is starting out the school year strong with the following updates:
The Bulldog Band is prepping for the White Cane Day Rally on October 13th in Acacia Park. We have added a violinist to our band this year and we hope to present three new songs along with our Bulldog Band classics, including our original song “My White Cane.”
Our students in the beginning band are working hard on Winter program selections. We are also focusing on music literacy skills using the print musical notation and Music Braille.
The FCEE Class-School for the Blind
The FCEE Classes are preparing to take a trip to the symphony in October. We are also using music time to help reinforce “All About Me” concepts in their classrooms. For example, music is used to help students remember their birthday dates and years. Students are working with the Quaver Curriculum on musical concepts
The FCEE Class-School for the Deaf
Students in the second grade are working on whole notes, half notes and quarter notes. We also learned vocabulary such as “improvise” and “ostinato.” Students are working with the Quaver Curriculum on musical concepts
The Upper Elementary
The Upper Elementary classes are practicing for a performance at the White Cane Day event on Oct 13th. We are excited that they will be singing a song in two party harmony for the community. We are working on tall vowels with good breath support to support their tone quality. We have learned a lot about singing this past quarter.
