Hi! My name is Hannah Hindman, and I am the music teacher here at HLIS. This is my second year, and I am so glad to be teaching your children the joys of music.
I am a May 2019 graduate of Delta State University with a major in Music Education and an emphasis in vocal music and performance. I can also play various instruments including percussion, ukulele, guitar, a little piano, and recorder (of course!) I have been singing and playing since I was just a child and have a love for music that I hope I can instill in your children. We're going to have a lot of fun!
In my class, I focus on three key things. One, is music literacy, where students will learn how to read and perform music. We practice rhythm sight reading every day. They will also be exposed to various composers and time periods of music through listening and performance opportunities in class. Finally, we always have a sing-along at the end of class. I believe singing brings joy, and we all could use some joy right now, right?
Goals for this year:
-Recorder for 5th grade
Due to some unforeseen shifts, I have not had the opportunity to post music lessons online. However, starting this week, I will be posting lessons every 8 school days to fit the rotation of in-person to make it as normal as possible. The lessons will be the same as they are in school, just adjusted to fit the needs of students at home. Please be on the lookout for these lessons. I can't wait to see your child's progress in music!
Please let me know if you need anything or have any questions for me. You can drop me an email here, or send me a message through schoology and I will try to get to it as quickly as possible. Thank you!
