Welcome to General Music!
Check out this video for your Virtual Open House!
In 8th Grade General Music we continue with the program called "Quaver’s Music". This program provides us with 21st Century resources to help excite our students about music fundamentals so they can learn to love music.
It’s student-centered, technology-savvy, and continually-updated. So far the students have thoroughly enjoyed the smart board games that help integrate new information that they have been introduced to through watching 12 minute episodes of Quaver. We do several class room activities designed for the music element we are studying. They spend time each week on-line composing music, learning about new styles of music, playing games that reinforce content that was learned that week and experimenting with all the number of activities on the website.
As 8th grade will be reviewing our fundamentals of music, but will also be doing an in-depth program in Music History. The Quaver Middle School technology is constantly changing keeping our curriculum abreast of the new ways and techniques of teaching.
We look forward to continuing our learning of music through this program!
