Oak Elementary


It's been a great first nine weeks !  I have enjoyed hearing you guys giggle at the silly songs and dance activities we've done! I have enjoyed watching you perform steady beats and review the term "tempo".  We played the beat with our sticks while we listened to some of our favorite songs and marched to the fast and slow beats!  

In the next few weeks we will be talking about and reviewing rhythm- which makes music so much more interesting! We will be singing, speaking and performing rhythms on instruments as well!
I cannot wait to see you back in Music

"Singing For Hope" Auditions

Chorus members auditioning to sing at the spring concert need to come prepared to sing your song next Tuesday and Wednesday (March 28th and 29th) during the regular chorus time. Your song needs to be memorized and you need to bring the music with no voices (karaoke/ accompaniment). You can bring the music on a CD, a flash drive, an iPod/Phone or you can email the song to me at enelson@bartlettschools.org. I cannot wait to hear you!  Please feel free to ask any questions- email is the best option!  See you there!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Welcome Back!!!!
     I hope you had a great time with family and friends over our holiday break- I'm so glad you are back and ready to dive in to all that you will be doing this semester! I'm looking forward to learning about and playing all types of instruments, contrasting and comparing instruments and their families as well as singing and dancing and doing activities on the Promethean board!
     As we begin our journey into 2015, my wish for you is that you would have the health to do all the things you want to do, the curiosity to try new things (and determination to not quit if it is difficult) and the inner strength to always find a way to be a better person and continue to grow in academics, actions and attitude!
Here's to a fantastic 2015!
