In fourth grade, we use our notation reading skill a lot, learning rhythms and pitches through reading the notes on the page. We begin to learn keyboard, as well as play many other instruments. We sing a lot, with a large focus on learning The Star Spangled Banner. We also work very hard on learning the correct ways to count music.
"If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music."
