Music is one of the most important educational courses a student can take, as it exercises both artistic and logical thinking. With eAchieve, Wisconsin state standards are used to structure our lesson plans, guaranteeing a well-rounded, fulfilling learning experience for our first grade students.
By the end of their time in first grade, our students will have started working on echoing short rhythmic and melodic patterns to build their techniques. Group work will conducted to teach students how to sing or play with matching dynamic levels and how to respond to cues by a leader. Aside from working in a group, students will practice independent parts, contrasting or complimenting with parts other students have. Students will also begin to work on improvisation to create simple rhythms or melodies with the potential to build short songs or instrumental pieces.
