Hello everyone, Ms. Lee is looking for everyone's two vocal music activities on the internet:
1. "Welcome to Vocal Music" Google Form - most of the vocal music students did this in class about two weeks ago,
2. "Welcome to Flipgrid" - individually done on Flipgrid, either in school or at home. If you have not done them, get going!

This coming week we have lessons about music genres and styles. Everyone will have a chance to try Chrome Music Lab before we take a piece of paper and use pencil to make a rhythmic composition in class!

If you just moved from an instrumental music class to vocal, no worries, we will help you to catch up soon. Welcome to Vocal Music!

Each Vocal Music student will receive a "Singing Basics" booklet this week. A three ring binder will be able to keep the pages in order perfectly. It is students' personal copy to use at home and school. Students can always find our Vocal Music class songs online, via this website or IUSD Vocal Music Canvas pages. The main difference is that this website does not need any login. We will tour each grade level Canvas page during this week's music lessons.

Ms. Lee will teach a lesson on the topic of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and get your own copy of the lyrics here.
