Welcome to Laporte Elementary Music Distance Learning!

Week 6   May 5 * no school Monday*                Have a great week!  Mrs. D.

Hey guys! Normally we would be working very hard on our spring concert these last weeks. We will make up for it next year!

This week we are looking at the instruments in the orchestra.  We have talked about some in class. Remember the day I brought a violin for us to see, hear and hold? Do you remember how many strings it had? (Four) And a guitar has how many strings? (Six)  

George Meets the Orchestra – a fun introduction to the instruments as told by George


After watching--Are there two or more instruments you would like to learn to play? Which ones?

What kind of instruments do you pluck or bow?  (strings)

What instruments does George say are loud?  (brass – trumpet, tuba ….)

On which instruments did George use a stick or mallet on?  (percussion – drums. Xlylophones,…)

We also saw a several instruments during Celebration, week 4. Do you remember any?

Happy!     ENJOY!   And….

~Sing along~,


~Stand and moooove ~ OR

 ~Take two pencils and play a make-believe trapset~    OR all the above. Have fun with this song!



Huh, because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do
