Welcome to Merrywood's Music RoomMrs. Hopkins2018-2019Welcome back to an exciting school year in music. I am delighted to be able to teach all of the Merrywood Musketeers this year. I am also going to Woodfields Elementary on Wednesdays.I believe that all children should be given the opportunity to be music makers. They should also become music literate in order to develop a well rounded education. I use a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of my students. I try to build a sense of community and trust in the music classroom which is key to student success. I want all of my students to be lifelong music lovers!In the music room all students are expected to follow the rules, "The Mission is Possible" or they will have to sit in the rest area for a time. Each class is trying to get to 30 stars to receive a free music class. 5 Stars can be awarded for each class period.We are fortunate to have a classroom set of ukuleles at Merrywood this year. The 4th and 5th graders will be learning to play them throughout the year.Ask your child what they are learning in music each week.
