for all of her music classes as her primary means for communicating with parents about what is happening in classes, as well as individual student accomplishments and concerns. She will post pictures and videos during class on the "class story" to show parents what students are learning! Students will also have a "student portfolio" on class dojo, which will show image and video examples of their work in music class.
Parents can view their child's student portfolio anytime!
Students receive 40 minutes of music instruction once every THREE days of school.
During those 40 minutes, the students will sing, learn to play instruments,
move to music, listen and evaluate the quality of music performances,
learn basic music literacy, and create their own music compositions and videos.
Mrs. Dobmeyer has started her own youtube channel, "Mrs. Dobmeyer".
She creates videos that will reinforce concepts from class- vocal exercises, rhythm reading drills, ear training, and more! Students are encouraged to view the videos and follow instructions to build upon their skills learned in class!
