About music class!

Music class will look quite different this year through virtual and socialy distant learning. Students will still get to explore music through experiential learning. We will discover new musical concepts through listening, reading, movement, instrument playing, singing, and creating. From Kindergarten to Second Grade students will learn musical fundamentals such as beat, rhythm and pitch. First Grade students will learn how to read rhythmic notation. Second grade students will begin to read and notate pitch. In third grade, students will learn to read the treble clef staff. Fourth grade students will continue and master recorder playing this year. Fifth grade students will explore writing and performing their own original songs!  All grades will  make musical discoveries through movement and storytellings Listening units this year will include  western and eastern classical music, jazz, rock n' roll, and hip hop. 


About Mrs. Battiata! 

I am so excited to be returning for my third year at Haymarket! Over the past seven years I have taught in Virginia, Oklahoma, and California. I graduated from James Madison University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Music Education with a vocal concentration. While my voice is my main instrument, I also play piano, ukulele, guitar, and percussion. I have sung in multiple professional choirs and opera/ musical theater companies. Teaching elementary music is my absolute passion. I love being a part of children's early experiences with music. I also love hiking, cooking, and snuggling with my sweet dog Janet and my NEW baby boy, Harrison!
It's going to be a great year!!!
