 The EBOP Blog - Day 8

We had a great class today with lots of help from our high school friends! We learn our first few notes on our instruments and started discussing rhythm. Next week we will be learning more about rhythm and how to play as a group!

Have a great weekend!

 The EBOP Blog - Day 7

Today we learn how to assemble, hold, and make sounds on our instruments! It is a blast having so many excited new players in one room!

If your student still needs a book or has the incorrect book, please contact Music and Arts directly to exchange or replace your book. The book we will be using in class is the Sound Innovations Book 1 (blue book). 

See you Thursday!

 The EBOP Blog - Day 6

We got our instruments today!!!!!

Your student should have come home with a new instrument to explore. Everyone should have also received a method book (blue book) and an instrument care kit (big box). If your student did not receive all of these items, please contact Music and Arts directly. 

Have fun exploring your instruments this weekend!

 The EBOP Blog - Day 5

Hello EBOP Families, 

Unfortunately, the long weekend has delayed our instrument delivery. We are hoping to have them in your students hands on Thursday. In the meantime, we learned about musical forms (call and response, canon, etc.) and will keep adding to our musical knowledge every class! We also competed in a review "quiz show" with all of the teams ending in a tie! Can you believe it?!?!

Have a great day and we will see you on Thursday!

 The EBOP Blog - Day 4

Hello EBOP Families, 

We are so excited that our instruments are coming soon! In the meantime, we are working on learning all about musical symbols. Today we learned about the notes on a staff and what clefs are. We will be jumping right into playing our instruments as soon as we have them. 

If you have not rented an instrument yet, please follow this link to do so ASAP. 

Have a great three day weekend!
