    Happy Easter! Happy spring! With parent supervision, please pull up on youtube:

    "Easter songs for children", "Spring songs for children" and sing a long to fun songs such as

    "B-U-N-N-Y", "Spring Is Here", "This Is the Way the Bunny Hops", "Springtime" "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" and more.

    Fourth and fifth grade students please check out my Useful Links page and read Part 3 about JS Bach and the BRANDENBERG CONCERTOS on Classics 4 kids. Click on Learn More About Johann Sebastian Bach and do the music listening underneath. You can then do the short quiz :) JS Bach was one of the greatest keyboard artists of all time! Enjoy learning more about him for week 3.

    All Sixth Grade students this week should SUBMIT the musical instrument slideshow! Great job Nate M and Alexa. Looking forward to viewing the slideshows of the rest of the class! E-mail them to me ASAP as Friday is the end of the marking period!

    Make sure you proofread it first. Be sure to have an image on each slide. If you have any questions or problems, please e-mail me at jmusso@brielleschool.org

    Check out my USEFUL LINKS  page for more fun with music, especially Classics4Kids - go to the section marked Play and find the game of note names. Practice reading notes in both treble and bass clefs.
