Dear Parents and/or Guardians: 

A music student will demonstrate the ability to learn the joy of listening, making, and sharing music together at the earliest age possible while learning the fundamentals of music. To teach the students that anyone can learn the art of performing in public and reach their performing and artistic goals first they will learn good attending skills, self-confidence, the love and passion for the arts, the desire to perform, the discipline to listen, the moral support at home to reinforce music appreciation, and the will to practice the different skills required to be a great student in school and not just during music classes. Please remember that REPETITION is one of the most important ways to learn! Always have fun and enjoy singing, dancing, playing instruments, reading and writing music, and finally creating original music in general!

 
At Daniel Webster School the main objective is to teach every student in grades PreK through second the fundamentals of music, dance, and the performing arts. Each grade level learns through a sequenced curriculum and by performing in various live programs. The students learn to use their singing voices (falsetto), learn to move their bodies to different rhythms, and learn the basics of the universal language of music. For example, they learn musical notation, music appreciation, theory, etc.
The Daniel Webster School Concert Choir is made up of first and second grade students who try out for the vocal ensemble at the beginning of the school year. The auditions are held in the classrooms during music classes. The students interested in trying out must be ble to sing songs already learned in front of their peers one student at a time. 
The goal is to learn to make music, share the music, perform in public, and have fun doing it!

 
GRADES 1 & 2 MATERIALS! 

Please remember that all of the students in grades 1 & 2 are required to bring a one subject notebook and #2 pencil in school due no later than September 31, 2017, in order to learn to write important terms, concepts, projects, and/or original ideas during music classes every week. The students will also be taught to read and write the fundamentals of musical notation in grades 1 & 2. They will be able to create, sing, and/or play their own unique short pieces of music.

 

Q: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

A: It is very simple... Practice, Practice, Practice!

 

 

Congratulations to The Daniel Webster School Concert Choir whom performed so magnificently during our annual Spring Recital. Thank you to all whom were involved with the program. Special thanks to the members of the vocal ensemble.

“DWS 2017-18 Choir Auditions Information!”

“DWS Concert Choir Auditions!”

Dear Parents/Guardians in Grades 1-2 currently attending DWS,

Attached you will find a choir consent form that has to be filled out, signed, and return to Mr. Romano ASAP for the students that are interested and have a desire to try out for the 2017-18 DWS Concert Choir! The auditions will take place during September and through October. The volunteers need to sing and perform songs a cappella all by themselves in front of their peers. The songs are, “God Bless America,” for first graders and “The Star-Spangled Banner,” for second grade students.          

There are always an overwhelming number of students who audition for the ensemble. Please remember that many students will not be selected because the choral group consists of around forty-five students. All of the participants have to be congratulated in advance for trying out, practicing, and for being a brave performer.

The students who are selected to the choir will have to make up any classroom work missed during rehearsals once per week. They have to be excellent students because academics are most important, be responsible students, and maintain an excellent attendance record for all performances and practices during school. The members must wear the proper attire to all of the concerts; plain white tops/shirts, black pants/skirts, dark shoes, and no sneakers please?

NOTE: All of the students attending DWS in grades 1 and 2 are required to bring in a one-subject notebook for music classes. All of the same students will be performing during the Winter Program in December of 2017 in the Gym/Theatre. Everyone, parents, guardians, family, and friends, are all cordially invited to this wonderful Annual Event!

If you have any questions, comments, and concerns, please contact me ASAP. Thank you very much for your patience and kind understanding! Respectfully!
