Ms. Hoffert's Music Classroom

Subject: 
Music

Hi Rocky Mountain Elementary families!

Welcome to music with Ms. Hoffert. We will be exploring music this year through a modern blend of Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze pedagogies. Through Kodaly, students will learn musical literacy and aural skills through the use of solfege and rhythm syllables. Through Orff, students will learn to improvise, dance, and make music through instinct, play, and experimentation. Through Dalcroze, students will learn to connect their body to their music making via eurhythmics. All of these pedagogies will be combined using music both new and old, from Mozart to nursery rhymes to Billie Eilish. 

In combination with these pedagogies and music choices, Ms. Hoffert will be using Quaver Music which is both a music curriculum and educational platform. Student account informationn will be posted shortly for Quaver Music for the year. 

In addition, musical extracurricular activities are available to students who are interested in performing in after-school clubs. Clubs will include choir in the fall and theater in the spring. Information on these clubs will come out as the year unfolds.

I look forward to having a great year with you in music!
