IN 2013-14, 6th grade students at Seward attend a music elective three days a week (Weds, Thurs, Fri).
This course is paired with a required media class two days a week (Mon / Tues).
Below is information about music electives offered in previous school years. These classes may be offered again in the future.
Learn to play the guitar or improve your existing guitar skills. After a brief group instruction of a new technique, song or music theory, guitar students spend most of their class time working independently or in small groups to practice music they have chosen. Students are evaluated on their knowledge with a written test. Guitar playing skills are evaluated whenever the student performs informally for the teacher. Students also prepare a piece of music to perform for the class. As a final project, some students visit Children's House and E-1 classrooms to perform guitar music for them and answer questions about the guitar. This class follows MPS 6th grade curriculum as much as possible. (The curriculum is written for classes that meet daily for a year; our class meets three times weekly for one quarter of the year.)
(offered Quarter 2 in 2013-14)
Learn to play melodies on xylophones and classroom percussion. Perform music from the United States and around the world. Perform in large and small ensembles. Create your own music with a group. Students will prepare a piece to perform for the class by the end of the quarter.
