Welcome to MUSIC!
Hello! My Name is Ms. Heal! I will be your child’s music teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! This is my 5th year teaching at St. Adalbert Catholic Academy and Resurrection Ascension Catholic Academy and I am excited to make this our best year yet!
2018-2019 School Year
General Music Syllabus
General Music classes will be offered daily for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Each level of instruction is increased in depth and rigor as students continue from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Activities in the classroom include singing, playing percussion instruments, movement activities, and many more. This curriculum when combined with effective instruction, enables students to achieve the overall goal for arts education in the state of New York.
Each student will be required to bring a folder and pencil to music class. Failure to bring the required materials to music class will result in a lowered preparation grade for the day.
General Music Activities:
Concepts and skills will be developed by incorporating the following activities:
- Kinesthetic movement
- Playing classroom instruments
- Written assignments (given on occasion depending on grade level)
- Projects (given on occasion depending on grade level)
- Cross-curriculum incorporations
- Be Polite

* If written assignments/projects are assigned, they will be factored into the participation percentage
