    For the 2020-20201 School year, the Elementary Music Program is excited to announce we are now creating and providing music lessons two times per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for ALL elementary grade levels, including TK through 5th grades!! :)

    Through Distance Learning, all of our music lessons are posted on our Google Site! For easy access for students, most classroom teachers have been able to post our link onto Google Classroom or Seesaw.  

    This is the link to the FCUSD Elementry Music site:  https://sites.google.com/fcusd.org/fcusdmusic/home


    To help kick off our new school year with Distance Learning music lessons, our team of Elementary Music teachers put together a fun video called "Eye of the Tiger - Distance Learning" for your viewing pleasure! Can you guess what instruments we're playing to make these rhythms? (If you guessed Boomwhackers, you're correct!!) 😊

    Here's the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DEXCyOX8Jw


    “Music Makes Us Happy” is one theme recently used for creating music lessons!  We hope you’ll take a moment to check out a video of our music teachers, based on “Happy” by Farrell Williams (using Orff/classroom instruments)! 😊  Here's the link to that video!   https://safeyoutube.net/w/PK9U


    If your students have missed any prior lessons, they are still on our Google site and available for students to participate in. When students are on their grade level page they simply click the side arrow on the slide deck to go back to previous lessons.  We hope our elementary students enjoy all of the lessons and look forward to them each Tuesday and Thursday! Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions!
