Mrs. Julia Fair
I have had a deep passion for music for most of my life and knew in junior high that I wanted to teach music. I have been teaching music since 2004 after earning my BFA in Music Education from the University of Minnesota, Morris. In 2009 I earned my Masters in Music Education from Boston University. While my favorite to teach is elementary music and musical theater, I am also a band director, love teaching dance and cannot stop crafting!
K-2 will be exploring some of our classroom percussion for the first quarter. We will also be working on steady beat, beginning music notation, and active listening, which includes movement. Due to health restrictions, plans may change based on the safety needs for all students and staff.
3-5 will be working with active listening, which includes movement and student created choreography. They also will be exploring pieces on bucket drums, boomwhackers, handbells, xylophones and more. Again, due to heath restrictions, plans may change based on the safety needs for all students and staff.
Most of our students should have the "Bell App" on their Chromebooks. If you would like to install it on another device at home, simply go to your device app store and look up "Prodigies Bells." It is FREE!!!! Your students can enjoy exploring and creating music at home using this technology-based instrument.
