Hey Brent Families!

Exciting things are happening in the music room this year...

A new technology based music curriculum will be used at Brent (as well as Whitaker).  "Quaver's Beyond Marvelous General Music Curriculum" is a comprehensive, customizable program, revolutionizing the way technology is used in today's music classroom!  I will be able to use lesson plans as is, or customize them with my own resources or other resources in the Quaver library.  I can choose to add YouTube videos and upload mp3 audio files as well!  This Curriculum meets all national and state music standards for grades K-6.  Singing, movement, creativity, playing classroom instruments, improvisation, and other resources that I have been using will continue to be a vital part of music class.

Over the past couple of years I have been hearing, reading, and seeing examples of this curriculum.  After seeing it in action at a few elementary schools this past spring, our music department decided that the Quaver Music Curriculum was something that our elementary students deserved to have!
