In fourth grade, the students will be learning about American history through music. We will study American folk songs, composers, and "American music". We will also be studying how the making and enjoyment of music has changed with technology.
Our primary composer that we study this year is Mozart. The students will spend the year comparing and contrasting his music to the "American" music that we experience.
As the students become more accomplished musicians, they will control more and more of the music that they make in class. I'll be posting some of the recordings that we make so that the children may enjoy and share them at home.
