In 2nd grade music we are sharpening our musical skills and learning specific information that will prepare us to progress as musicians. We use our singing voices, instruments, and movement to perform different things at the same time! We know and use the names of rhythms and pitches, dynamics, tempi, and other musical symbols. We can write or improvise our own music using our knowledge. We are proficient at naming our classroom instruments and playing them correctly. We recognize and name orchestra families and individual instruments. We enjoy both creative and sequenced movement.
We take pride in understanding and creating music that is increasingly complex.
