Year 4 Instrumental Testing

This week Year 4 students are sitting an aptitude test, which is one of the tools used to select students for the Instrumental Music School Services classes. Aubin Grove offers lessons on clarinet, flute, brass and classical guitar in Year 5 and 6. Please ensure laptops are charged as they will require this for their test. I will also hold a catch-up test in 2 weeks time during lunch for any interested students who are away during their Music lesson.

Grover’s First Performance

Last week the boys of Grover performed for the first time as a band. Congratulations boys, you should be proud of your efforts!

 

NAIDOC

Some of the songs we are learning for NAIDOC Week

Ukulele

This term the Year 4 students were learning to play the ukulele. They learnt how to hold the instrument correctly, how to strum different rhythms and how to play 3 chords (C, F & G7).

The Year 5 and 6 students also continued to learn the ukulele, building on their skills from last year. They learnt some new chords including Am, G and Em. Many of us can now play Riptide!

Year 3 Raps

Year 4-6 Melody & Partner Part Compositions

For the past 3 weeks the Year 4-6 students have been composing their own original songs. They wrote melodies using xylophones or glockenspiels and a partner part using 2 non-tuned percussion instruments. Once students had hand written their masterpieces they then used Noteflight, an online music notation software to create a score. This software enables students to listen to their music notation, which assists them in writing their notes and rhythms correctly and knowing whether they are playing correctly when performing it live with instruments.

EVERYONE BELONGS

Chords: G D A Bm

 

Everyone belongs

In our community

Everyone is different

There’s so much diversity

Everyone belongs

Just as much as you or me

So stand up for one another

So we can live in harmony

 

Like the tears that fall from your eyes

Like the blood that runs inside

Like our hearts that break the same way

We will all think about the words we say

 

CHORUS

 

Our multicultural society

It offers a very mixed variety

It doesn’t matter where you are from

This is a place where you belong

 

CHORUS

 

Australians all let us rejoice

For we are young and free

We will stand together forever

For those who’ve come across the seas

 

CHORUS
