Class Letter 

Hello!, and welcome to music class at West Side Elementary! I am very excited about this year and the many things we will be learning in music class!  My overall goal is for each child to develop the concepts, skills, and attitudes for a lifetime enjoyment and appreciation of music.  This is accomplished through a variety of experiences, such as singing, playing instruments, listening, moving, improvising, creating, expressing, and performing.

We will have numerous performances during the year including a school wide Christmas Concert. Other opportunities may include musicals, grade level concerts, and the chance to participate in our Talent Show in the spring. 


In music class we utilize Quaver Music Curriculum. What is that? Check this out from their website...


Enriching Lives Through Music Education

Quaver Music is the world leader in General music education for grades Pre-K to 8. General music is our sole focus. As a result, in less than four years, our music education programs have been adopted by more than 7,500 schools worldwide. In fact, we support schools in 50 states and 29 countries using Quaver’s teaching resources. We are committed to maintaining ongoing, relevant, and helpful communications with our teachers, which we consider part of the Quaver family. 




In order to ensure that these goals can be reached and to promote a positive learning environment, the following guidelines have been established for music class.

1. Class can earn a special music class by showing consistent positive behavior as a group throughout the month.  

2.  Good report to classroom teacher

3.  Praise  

4. Braves Bucks/Dojo points
