Welcome!! You have now entered the Music Zone where we have fun by exploring our unknown creativity. We learn about other places in the world through Music. We explore instruments, dances, languages, and genres worldwide. We play on instruments, alone and with others. We improvise melodies and variations. We compose and arrange music in a variety of ways. We read and notate music. We listen, analyze, and describe music. We evaluate music and musical performances. We make connections between music and other subject areas. We understand music as it relates to history. We also sing.
Thanks to the Lang Lang International Foundation, Falkener is one of the elementary schools in Guilford County that will offer piano. This year, students is grades 2-3 will learn to play the piano. Each year, a grade year will be added on so that all students will learn to play the piano. We are excited and we can't wait to begin!!!
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kimberly Brown (Red Pod Leader)
I have been teaching for 10 years. I graduated from North Carolina A&T State University with Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I also have a certification in Medical Administration from Guilford Technical Community College. I will begin course work for my Master's degree in January 2019. I like to color, run in marathons, eat delicious food, spend time with my family, and read. My favorite food is waffles and ice cream. I love to change the color of my hair as a form of creativity. My favorite quote is "When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind." Stay anchored!!
