7th Grade Chorus 

Students in 7th grade chorus worked on beginning music theory this week.  We reviewed note names in treble clef and students were introduced to reading bass clef. Quizzes will be happening later next week or the following week depending on how in-class review goes so students should be reviewing their music theory packets at home. Students also listened to a recording of “Camptown Races” by the professional choir “Chanticleer”. Camptown races is one of three songs in a Stephen Foster medley students are learning for their Winter Concert.

8th Grade Chorus

Students in 8th grade also worked on music theory – a quick review of note names from last year along with rhythmic identification (identifying note and rest types).  Students continued to work on sight singing and their Veterans Day music.
