Saint Therese
Musical Update

                      Hello all! A lot of wonderful things have been happening in the music classes at Saint Therese! We have been working very hard to learn about the major scale using solfege syllables and hand signals.  Many classes even learned how to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" while signaling the corresponding solfege hand signs! We have had a lot of fun playing musical solfege, and we have been working hard to figure out scales in different keys using the major scale pattern.  What a fun unit!

                     Moving ahead, I am so excited to announce that the theme of our Spring Concert is
"The Wonderful World of Disney"

                     We are beginning to practice songs from some of the most iconic Disney movies, and we couldn't be more excited! I will send more information once we get closer to the concert!

                    Hello Parents, Teachers, and Students!  We have been working very hard these past few weeks to prepare for the Christmas Concert!  While we still have some practicing to do, we are very excited to perform!
                    The Christmas Concert will be held on Thursday, December 20th at 7:00 in the evening.  I would like all of the students to be dressed in their Sunday best!  It would be wonderful to wear some Christmas colors to get everyone in the spirit!  No jeans or sneakers will be allowed.  
                  I look forward to celebrating Christmas in song with the students and families of Saint Therese!  Please feel free to email me if there are any questions!  Thank you for your continued support!  Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Music Class with Mrs. Pachella!Image result for music

Hello students and parents of Saint Therese!
I am so pleased to be a part of the wonderful Saint Therese school community.  I can already see what a wonderful group of students and teachers Saint Therese is blessed with.  

I am very excited to begin our school year! We have already been working very hard to learn about many different instruments and which families they belong to.  All of the students did very well on this unit!  Next week we will begin learning the very basics of music theory.  We will also begin preparing for the Christmas concert.  Yes, I know Christmas seems very far away right now, but the more time we have to prepare the better!

Sharing the love of music is my passion and I truly hope that during our time together this school year I will help my students grow in music and find an appreciation for music they may never have had before.
