Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Joseph Dalton
Mr. Joseph Dalton is the music teacher at Saint Rose of Lima School.
I believe the best way to raise the level of musicianship with each individual student is with hands on projects.
Some of the elements the students will be studying include vocal music, rhythms, reading music notation, listening, dynamics and dynamic change, some music history, and instruments.
The very young students learn to recognize the difference between loud and soft, fast and slow, and high and low pitch.
The first and second grades will start to read notation.
Third and fourth will begin to play recorders.
Fifth and sixth will use buckets to perform rhythms.
Seventh and eighth will use the pianos that were donated last year.
And of course, our activities will be varied.
