Archer to Cleveland Via Video

In celebration of “Music in Our Schools Month,” students in Jennifer Skelly’s classes at Archer Street visited the Cleveland Institute of Music directly from their classroom to learn about a variety of concepts.
Fourth-graders participated in an enriching videoconference call with CIM to learn about “Dalcroze Eurhythmics.” The interactive virtual journey was comprised of teaching musical concepts with an emphasis on movement, and where and how to use musical symbols to create notation.
In addition, kindergartners enjoyed participating in a videoconference titled “Let’s Go to the Show.” The students became conductors and experienced the thrill of singing and dancing in a show, along with learning the basic elements of music, musical theatre and opera.
Archer’s celebration of “Music in Our Schools Month” highlighted its ongoing emphasis on maintaining its stellar music instruction.
