We are very proud of the music program at Lockwood. We offer a comprehensive program throughout the year which has a heavy emphasis on vocal technique but also includes units in Instrumental Families, African Drumming, Orff Instruction, Guitar, and much more.
There will be several assemblies conducted largely by the music dept including Veteran's, Holiday, and Martin Luther King Jr. Grade level performances will also be held in December, March, May and June. Please check the calendar for specific dates and times.
Jan 2019 Message from Mrs. Abdi and Mr. Bacot:
As the semester comes to an end, we music teachers would like to let you know of a new plan we will be putting in place this year. Beginning Jan. 29, we will rotate all of our classes so that Mrs. Abdi’s current music students will become Mr. Bacot’s students and Mr. Bacot’s current students will become Mrs. Abdi’s music students. We have been talking about this in class with our kids, so this will not come as a surprise to them. We thought you should be aware of this change as well.
Both of us feel this is the very best way to expose all students to our various areas of expertise. Mr. Bacot leads his students through guitar , ukulele, and music technology. Mrs. Abdi leads her students through African drumming and Orff instruments as well as recorders. Additionally both of us do LOTS of singing and music games! We also will continue to work with each grade level on their annual music performance (schedule of these coming shortly! 5th graders have done this!)
We really enjoy working with all the students here at, Lockwood and are very excited for this rotation! In addition to all of the above, we get to meet new students and work with their teachers! It will be an exciting year!
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us. Thanks so much!
Sincerely, Mary Abdi firstname.lastname@example.org Adam Bacot email@example.com
