By second grade, many children will already be using music in their daily life outside of school in various forms. eAchieve Academy’s second grade music coursework focuses on utilizing the musical instincts children will have already been building to improve upon and develop for greater musical understanding and techniques.
Near the end of their second grade year, students will have worked on reading notes and rests in their varied forms, including whole, half, dotted, and eighth. Students will also begin to use a system of numbers and letters to read basic pitch notation in the treble clef and other major keys. Our students will be taught to identify traditional symbols and terms referring to volume and tempo and how to interpret them correctly while performing. It is at this point in their education when our students will learn how to identify similar and different phrases of music.
