Fourth Grade General Music
In fourth grade, students will learn more about the instrument families. They will learn about the percussion, brass, woodwind, string and keyboard families and their roles in music and musical groups. Many fourth graders choose to play a band instrument, so their study of the musical families in general music helps them to gain an even greater knowledge of their chosen instrument.
Fourth graders will continue to explore musical concepts such as pitch and melody, rhythm, tempo, dynamics, composition, movement and instrument skills.
