Grade 2 Shines!

Grade 2 Shines!

Students in Grade 2 are learning to play the xylophones and pre-read music notation.  Our students are getting so good at it that they are memorizing phrases and patterns and some are able to conduct/lead the class!   It takes listening skills and patience to know when to move to the next note.  The conductor must listen for each student to play each note and move just at the right pace while they are learning the piece.  Next, they begin to keep a slow, steady tempo that the others must follow.  Great job students!
