Music: Ms. Jenifer Gelineau
“With music, one’s whole future life is brightened. This is such a treasure in life that it helps us over many troubles and difficulties. Music is nourishment, a comforting elixir. Music multiplies all that is beautiful and of value in life.”  – Zoltan Kodaly

Music

 

Welcome to Music

In Music, we explore music through playing, movement, listening, and asking ourselves where we find music in our own lives. 

 
 

Music Tool Kits

All students will receive a Music Tool Kit before their first session of music.  The Musical Instruments and items in the Music Tool Kit are not replaceable so they need to stay in their bags when not in use.  We will need these Music Tool Kits for every class.

 
 

Do I need a Zoom Link?

No!  Your child will not need a zoom link for music!  Instead, I will find your students in their homeroom zoom link.  
 
 

Will we have Performances this year?

YES!

Our performances will be Virtual Ensembles, like our Virtual Chorus from last year!  

 
 

What other Platforms will we use beside Zoom?

  • Flipgrid
  • Bandlab
  • MusicPlay

What songs/Cultures will we be learning this year?

This week, we will be starting with a song from Ghana called Adze ee!  It is in the Ewe language (1 of 19 languages in Ghana) and will incorporate movement and improvisation! 

Is there a song or dance you would like to share with us?  Please email me at gelineauj@springfieldpublicschools.com !
