Welcome to Hooverville Elementary Music:
Welcome to Hooverville Elementary Music website.
"The history of a people is found in its songs."
The goal is to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded musical education for all students. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me here at school.
Here in the Waynesboro District we offer...
Students grades 1-6 have a 40 minute class one time in a four day cycle. We focus on steady beat from the early grades to various rhythms, the elements of music, various styles of music, and instruments of the band and orchestra. This year we will be adding centers in which the students can work through the various elements of music at their own pace. Each year the 3rd and 4th grade students present a Veterans Day program in November.
Students may begin to learn an instrument in the spring of their 4th grade year. All 5th and 6th grade students involved in instrumental music receive a 20 min. lesson one time during the four day cycle with like instruments and a full band rehearsal for 30 min. on day 3 from 2:45-3:15 to prepare for concerts.
Open to all 5th and 6th grade students. 6th grade students practice from 2:45-3:20 on day 1, while 5th grade students practice from 10:20-11:00 on day 3.
I look forward to meeting many of you during our concerts.
Thank you for allowing me to work with your child.
