Welcome to News from the Music Room! 2017 – 2018 The Many Gifts of Music

A rich musical environment can improve all aspects of your child’s life. G.L.C. offers a music program for Grades K – 8. Instructed by musician, Mrs. Maureen Reid, the program follows the ORFF process of instruction which combines the elements of speech, rhythm, movement, dance and song. The children learn through singing, moving and playing instruments. They are active participants in a guided process which allows for different musical abilities. Our school believes in providing a well-balanced education to each child, music being a very important dimension.

Each class will attend the music room where they will have the opportunity to play many different instruments such as large tubano drums, hand drums, xylophones, glockenspiels, metallophones and many non-pitched percussion instruments. Older students will receive recorder instruction. All students will be exposed to a variety of musical concepts utilizing multi-media presentation formats such as live performances and synchronized performances with digital media.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to teach such an invigorating and dynamic approach to music education. Together, we will make the rafters ring! Watch for monthly updates on activities in the Music Room.

Maureen Reid,

Music Teacher ​

GlC Music Room 2016-17

Greetings from the GLC Music Room!

Another great year of music is underway with all students from Kindergarten to Grade 8. Already, students are showing great progress as they learn to keep the beat, move to the rhythm, sing in two part canon, play the barred instruments as well as numerous other percussion instruments and to follow standard notation.  The result is “music to our ears”!

Several classes are practising in preparation for Meet the Teacher Night this week.  Come on out and hear what they’re up to.
