Getting into Music!

I’m really excited to start teaching the students about what I learned at the ‘Florida Music Educator’s Conference’ in Tampa a couple of weeks ago. I met with many people about elementary music, steel drum bands, choral music, and percussion instruments. I found a few new instruments to bring to MBTS, some fantastic resource books, and a renewed and energized approach to teaching! I want to thank Montessori By The Sea for allowing me this amazing opportunity, and I can’t even begin to express how much I have learned and what I took away from this conference.

I even taught a lesson to Ms Kourtni, Ms Debbie, and Ms Andrea, and I must say they look like they had a blast! Please check out the photos below.

The Casa students have been learning some new singing games, and are getting more familiar with so-mi-la and will soon be adding ‘do’. They have also been finding their singing voice in a different way – with Kazoos!

The Kindergartners have been drawing notes and notating the songs we’ve learned.

In Lower Elementary we have begun using some fantastic items I acquired from the ‘Florida Music Educator’s Conference’ in Tampa – we’re using ribbons, boomwackers, and there’s still a few other surprises in store!

Upper Elementary have also used some of the materials from the FMEA conference – we’ve gotten some new recorder literature as well as 2 new recorders, the ‘soprinino’ (higher than the ‘soprano’ and smaller in size) and the Garlklein (a really tiny, high pitched recorder). I look forward to the new tunes we will be playing with 5 different sizes of recorders.
