May the 4th be with you! Let’s begin this week like every week, with We Are Cloverbank
Next, sing along with Baby Beluga! This time it’s my sister, Mrs. Clark from Winchester Elementary in West Seneca (Yes, my sister is also an elementary school music teacher…so was my dad!) Her daughter Natalie makes (a big) appearance!
Next, let’s do another at-home Musication Video!
Add on to this with a Dance!
Lastly, please check out my virtual Music Room! My suggestion is to click the Legos in the bottom-left corner.
May the 4th be with you! We’re still working on reading treble clef notes! Some of you sent me some drawing of Treble Clefs and they looked amazing! On top of the treble clef reading, I’ve also started a FlipGrid for recorder songs for the third graders. https://flipgrid.com/recordermonster
You can record yourself playing any of our Recorder Monster songs, even ones from which you already have a belt. The RecorderMonster.com password for May is “monster”. I will comment on each to say 1-2-3 or 4. Record as many as you’d like.
Now on to Treble Clef once more. Here is a video from The Royal Irish Academy of Music that describes treble clef.
Here is another diagram. Hopefully you’re starting to see that where the note is on the staff determines it’s pitch. With letters, it’s a different shape that tells them apart. An “A” looks very different than a “B”, but in music, they’re all circles, so it depends on whether it’s on a line or a space, AND which line or space it’s on.
