Miss Morrison's Music Page

Welcome to Lake Garda Music!

Regional School District #10 provides a safe and respectful learning environment to promote academic excellence and personal growth. We work collectively to cultivate the skills and knowledge of our students to create inquisitive leaders, and responsible citizens.

First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond* is Feierabend’s text for Pre-K through the beginning of 1st grade. Its focus is developing singing and movement skills, and is rich in traditional folk music. The design encourages students to be “tuneful, beatful, and artful.”

Beginning in first grade and continuing through fourth grade, students begin
Conversational Solfege*, Feierabend’s curriculum for teaching music literacy. This method uses a twelve-step process developing students’ aural skills, the way language is taught, before musical symbols are introduced. The curriculum incorporates rhymes, songs, games, and movement activities.


*This curriculum utilizes an approach to music learning created by Dr. John Feierabend, Prof. of Music and Dir. of the Music Ed. Div., The Hartt School of the Univ. of Hartford.
