Dear BFIS 4th Graders and Families,   students have been working hard to prepare for the Winter concert. 4th grade has also been learning recorder parts to accompany their songs in their study of Swing Music through Carnegie Hall’s The Orchestra Swings program.

 

 

 

The Music

A Perfect Winter Day

This delightful song is a partner song, in which there are two distinct melodies. Each class will be singing one of the melodies describing their perfect winter Day….although each group has a very different idea of WHAT makes a perfect winter Day!

Hello Parents and Students! This is Ms. G. I´m happy to be blogging about music in our school. I grew up in the United States, and recently moved to Barcelona from New York City. A little bit more about my professional background, I received my Bachelor´s in Music Performance from the Juilliard School, where I studied opera. I sang and worked as an Assistant Director with Opera Companies for many years before teaching music full time. This is my eighth year of teaching full time, and almost my fifteenth year of teaching private voice and piano lessons!
