• Welcome to Music Class 2019-2020

    I believe that everyone is a musician and so my goal is to guide each child in discovering their own unique musical expression. This will be done by teaching the elements of music and giving students a safe place to explore and create.

    I will be using the Arizona Music Standards and the DVUSD benchmarks to structure my curriculum. Each grade level will be singing, moving, dancing, composing, reading notation, and playing instruments. We will often learn through song and play, as well as the use of technology.

    Achievement grades are based on the daily music objectives and the Arizona Music Standards. Students will receive a separate Citizenship/Conduct grade.

    Please support your child by listening to many different types of music, help them to appreciate the symphony and the theater, visit the online sites I’ve provided on my staff website, and maybe even learn an instrument with them!

    Chorus will be available as an extracurricular after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-3:45pm. Students in chorus will perform in concert and have other performance opportunities. Go Sunrise Singers!

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Denman
