Vocal Music

Mrs. Webb

 

Mrs. Webb's Vocal Music Classes are off to a great start! We have so much to look forward to in the year ahead. 

Each week, students in grades K through 3 participate in vocal/general music for one 30-minute class. Students in grades 4 through 5 participate in vocal/general music once a week for 30 minutes, plus a 45-minute chorus class, where they continue to develop listening skills, rhythm reading skills and where they learn to sing in a large group. In all settings, children are learning to become better and more creative musicians!
