What a wonderful first day back at Kirk! It was so lovely seeing so many familiar faces.
Today, I saw first, second, and third grade. We played some name and rhythm games and learned about the Elements of Music!
Music has many ingredients that come together to make the final product. In music we have form, melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics, tempo, and timbre. When you combine these together, you create a musical composition! Our composer of the month (for August AND September) is George Frederic Handel!
Next week we will be going over dynamics, and, time permitting, tempo!
