Music at a Glance at Jenny Lind School

Welcome to Jenny Lind Music Department.  

Vocal Music - Ms. Trena Anderson

 VOCAL MUSIC

Our vocal music classes include elements of rhythm and melody during each session.  We start teaching in-depth rhythmic concepts in September.  Beginning in December, our focus elements are melody and pitch.  Various classroom instruments are incorporated into both these units, and include individual skill building in rhythmic and/or melodic composition. Students begin working on performance skills and polishing specific songs in March for a culminating event in May!

 STRINGS

Students in grades1-5 are participating in small group lessons.  Concepts in the state and national standards and vocal music classes are reinforced, refined and applied in the performance of their stringed instruments.  Students and parents receive a hand book (also available in the string section of this website) that outlines basic procedures, instrument care, and some practice routines.  MacPhail School of Music is a community partner in our string program, and Parents are also expected to be enthusiastic partners in their student's music education!
