Music Appreciation (MA6) is required for all 6th graders. Mr. Ellison's class has MA6 Tuesdays/Fridays for the first semester and Mrs. Jensen's class has MA6 Tuesdays/Fridays for the second semester. MA6 meets from 10:19-11:00 AM.
MA6 can consist of a variety of projects. Content covered is determined by the class size and the overall disposition of the group.

Music Family Tree
What music do you listen to now? Who inspired them? With this project we will explore the common sources of inspiration for today's artists.
This project takes place mostly in the computer lab. Students will have the opportunity to explore the many possiblities that exist via the application GarageBand. After our initial exploration, we will begin to go into specific directions as time allows.
