Kamehameha Elementary School
6th Grade Music
Teacher: Mrs. Lynell Bright
Vision: Haumāna exiting Kamehameha Elementary School will learn and value music through various unique experiences. Rooted in their Hawaiian identity, students will see how they are connected to the world through music.
Welcome to 6th Grade Music! Here, students will be in choir class for one day in the cycle and will continue their study on M.I.E. on the other day.
In choir class, students will continue to learn many songs that are part of the standard Kamehameha repertoire. They will also venture into singing songs with simple two or three part harmony such as, “Doxology”, “Ua Mau”, “Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka ‘Āina I Ka Pono” “Queen’s Prayer”, “Sons Of Hawai‘i”, “Ho‘āla Hou E Kamehameha”, and “Remember Who You Are” to name a few.
Music In Education (M.I.E.)
On the second cycle day, students will continue with their study in the M.I.E. program. This music program is a comprehensive technology assisted music program. Each child has his/her own keyboard which is hooked up to a computer. Through this program, the students learn music theory, music history, singing, creativity and composing. All of this is assessed in quizzes done on his/her keyboard. Through their continuation of the M.I.E., they will learn about: sixteenth note and rest, forte/piano and crescendo/decrescendo, sharp and flat, D Major/accidentals, 6/8 meter, form, dotted rhythms, A Major, F Major, minor tonality, Bb Major, chord progressions, and Major and Minor Triads.
