K/1 Music

Section 1. Course Description

K-1 music objectives start by instilling a seed of knowledge in the students that will continue to grow develop throughout their time at Honey Creek. Students will learn that music is more than just something that is listened to; it’s a form of expression, has a history, connects to other subjects, and inspires creativity. K-1 students will focus on concepts such as: identifying steady beat, high/low, fast/slow, loud/soft, singing and recognizing sol-mi-do, basic rhythm recognition such as ta, ti-ti, and rest, as well as beginning to match pitch.

Section 2. Monthly Updates

  • K/1 music has been focusing on showing me their steady beat, as well as telling the difference between gentle and strong. Our gentle has kids ice skating across the floor, and doing solos for their classmates. The strong activity is coming soon! We’re also experimenting with the different voices we can make such as a mouse voice, grandma voice, whisper voice, shouting voice, speaking voice, and more. See how many voices your student can remember, along with the chant!

    2/3 and 4/5 have both been in the midst of a unit on analyzing music. We’ve listened to the William Tell Overture, Ode to Joy, and O Fortuna so far. The kids have had a great time coming up with narratives and illustrations for the music based on its feel, style, and form. There’s been everything from a sword fight, to a king with a head that’s too big for his crown, and a moldy fridge!

     

    Both bands are making great progress through their music! We’ve started a rhythm of the day to improve music reading literacy and encourage the students to help each other with accuracy. The middle school band is very excited about what they’re preparing for everything this semester! There might be a movie theme in the works…

    It’s finally time for the ukulele elective to begin! Students will explore music reading through finger picking and chord strumming on the ukulele.  I hope to get them playing some popular music and possibly creating a playing video of their own. I can’t wait to see their progress!

  • January HBoN

    A huge thank you to all the families that came out to enjoy the Winter Performance! I love seeing such support for the students, and I know that they love having you there to see their hard work. I also appreciate all the compliments I received about the show and the students, I made sure to let them know how well they performed and how proud we are of all of them.

    The band students should have been working on their BANDO (band BINGO) sheets, to earn some prizes when we come back from break. Hopefully we get some blackout BANDO boards!

    Starting in January, all the students will delve into new material that we can’t wait to show you!

Below please find the lyrics to our K-1 only song, “King of the High C’s”. There is also a youtube video link to the music.

King of the High C’s

He is the finest of us all
Handsome, brave and very tall
He can fill a concert hall
(and sounds great in a shower stall)

Sits up in the high crow’s nest
Never taking vocal rest
Singing, he’s the very best
(some might say he is possessed)

He’s the King of the high, King of the high, King of the high… high C’s

His voice is like a golden bird
He sings most every single word
Greatest voice you’ve ever heard
(I think it’s all a bit absurd)

Wears the finest finery
Some superb designery
Sings major and in minor-y
But smells like a refinery

He’s the king of the high, King of the high, King of the high..high C’s

He is the finest of us all
Handsome, brave and very tall
He can fill a concert hall
(and sounds great in a shower stall)

Sits up in the high crow’s nest
Never taking vocal rest
Singing, he’s the very best
(some might say he is possessed)

He’s the king of the high, king of the high, king of the high… high C’s (x2)

Below please find the lyrics to our first song, “Pirates All Are We” Below this post is the link to the song on youtube.

Pirates All Are We Lyrics

All ye lubbers and lads
Ye and I a buccaneer be
Finest time ye ever have had
Come along with me

Man that sword ye cowardly swab
Off to sail the rollicking sea
Not a ship we would not rob
Pirates all are we

Come and sail the sea
Under skull and bones
Or I guarantee
You’ll sing to Davy Jones – Arr!

Gangway, me hearty men
Grab your cutlass, guzzle your nog
Ship-shape, ahoy and avast
Sail ye scurvy dog

Blow ye winds and anchors aweigh
A salty crew of mateys are we
Come along and sail today
Pirates all are we

Come and sail the sea
Under skull and bones
Or I guarantee
You’ll sing to Davy Jones

All ye lubbers and lads
Ye and I a buccaneer be
Finest time ye ever have had
Come along with me

Man that sword ye cowardly swab
Off to sail the rollicking sea
Not a ship we would not rob
Pirates all are we

Pirates all, Pirates all, Pirates all are we!
