We are going to make this same move next year, beginning our instrumental program in 4th instead of 5th, so I’m interested to hear experiences from others! I’m expecting that interest and excitement will be high, but that we will probably get through only about half of the material, moving through things much more slowly with more repetition, more warm-up, games, clapping and singing of songs, note reading exercises, etc. My hope is that we will have a stronger foundation by the time the students get to middle school, and that our fifth graders will be able to get into more interesting music by the end of the year.
