I am looking forward to a great year in music! Each student has a unique set of skills and talents that makes him or her so special. Each student has the opportunity at this age to find out what interests will be best to pursue. We explore different types of instruments and expand each student’s vocal skills. Students develop musical knowledge that they will take with them into the future. I will do my best to make this journey a memorable one.
I am looking forward to a great year in music here at White Oak! Each grade level will give a musical presentation for friends and family. These help develop students’ performance skills that they will use through out their lifetime. Students learn important musical skills and concepts in class and we like to have fun in the process. A small Select Choir will also be representing the school in several performances. More information is on the way in the future.
Let’s Key In To Music!
I look forward to seeing our returning students again and meeting our many new students this year! Fifth Graders need to bring their recorders back to music class to start the year. They will also be adding other instruments to their performance skills this year. Fourth Grade will be receiving information soon about ordering their recorders. Each grade level will have a performance. You will receive information about the performance as it approaches. Our Select Choir will be a smaller ensemble this year. Choir members will be selected through auditions and observation in music class. Teacher recommendations will also be part of the process. More information will follow. See you soon!
My name is Ms. Ritchey and this is my first year here to teach music to our Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students. I am going in to my 15th year as a music teacher and thrilled to call White Oak my teaching home now, after moving from San Antonio last year.
