Plans are underway for our first-annual Kindergarten completion ceremony! Please join us on June 5th at 8:30am for this exciting event!
Sing and dance along with these videos to prepare for our special celebration on June 5th!
We had fun using the Music Ace Doodle Pad to create class compositions! Each student composer selected an instrument sound and we synergized to create a class song!
On May 14th, the Las Lomas Honor Choir performed a special preview of our Austin program on the patio at OrderUp. The kids did a great job, and we can’t wait for our next performances- we will sing for the school on Friday and in the State Capitol Rotunda next Tuesday!
Students explored non-pitched percussion instruments and composed songs with their partner. We had so much fun performing them for our friends!
Our Music Express magazine for March/April 2013 included an article, song, and choreography for “Arirang”, a Korean folk song. We enjoyed learning about the instruments and culture of Korea! Arirang means “beautiful one” and Arariyo means “I will miss you”.

We had a blast celebrating Earth Day in music class today! We sang “Let It Grow” from The Lorax and brainstormed ways we can make a difference. I love the line of the song that says “Live your life, be true and never be afraid to grow!” Even a small change can make a huge impact!
