WELCOME TO THE MUSIC ROOM!
Welcome to the web page for Mrs. LaPorte's music classes. This page will give basic information for parents and students regarding general music classes, band and chorus.
Students in grades 1-3 receive one fifty minute music class per week. Students in grades 4 and 5 receive on fifty five minute music class per week. I feel very strongly that each child at North School should develop an appreciation and love for music. This will be done through singing, games, playing classroom instruments, music related activities, movement and dance. In the 4th grade, students put their knowledge into practice by playing the recorder.
Chorus is open to students in grades 4 and 5. Chorus meets during recess. Students wishing to be in Chorus need to read and sign an attendance contract. Chorus also has rehearsals prior to the school day at 8:00 A.M. Chorus members are required to attend two concerts each year.
Band is offered to students in fifth grade. Students can play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or drums. Students receive one group lesson per week. They also have full band practice weekly. The band plays at the two concerts each year and marches in the Memorial Day Parade.
