Weekly music classes for grades K-5th are much desired by Embers students. Mrs. Pasowicz teaches music theory, age appropriate sacred and secular songs, Octavio’s in two-part harmony for grades 3rd-5th, handbells, rhythm instruments and musical learning games. Performance opportunities for the students include a Veteran’s Day assembly, the Christmas Concert and Graduation.
Students are also taught music history on a monthly basis. Students enjoy learning about classical, rhythm and blues, jazz and contemporary music. They listen to excepts, read biographies and create projects or do an activity related to the lesson.
In addition to these classes Mrs. Pasowicz also conducts an after school choir for those interested students in grades 2nd-5th grades. This popular extracurricular activity has a big turnout of roughly 35 students per session. The first session focuses on learning two-part Octavio’s and performs for a nursing home in the community as well as the Christmas concert. The second session performs a musical. Embers has proudly presented 8 musicals over the years. Our next musical , “The Journey of the Noble Gnarble” premiers May 25th, 2017. See our home page for more information.
