It has been an amazing year in the music room here at OMES! We have learned so many new and exciting things from kindergarten to third grade. Let’s keep it up over the summer!
Here are a few fun websites you might want to check out to keep you singing and learning until we see each other again in August.
www.dsokids.com– Dallas symphony orchestra… lots of information on instruments, composers, and games to test your knowledge
www.nyphilkids.com– Super-fun site sponsored by the New York Philharmonic
www.classicsforkids.com– More fun games and information!
www.rogerday.com– Roger Day is a singer/songwriter from Tennessee who frequently performs in the Birmingham area during the summer months. His songs are fun and sometimes even educational (but don’t tell the kids :))
Remember that there are many things that you can do as a parent to encourage your child to love music and the arts:
Listen to a variety of music with your child.
Sing or play music together.
Attend concerts or watch concerts on television or online.
Encourage your child to participate in musical activities at school, church, and home.
Listen and show enthusiasm for your child’s musical achievements.
Attend music programs offered at school or church.
Play music games on the internet, iPod, iPad, or Nook! There are many awesome apps
Thank you again for an incredible year of music! See you in the fall!
