Mrs. Agee

Welcome to music!  My name is Katey Agee, and I have been a Bricker Bobcat for 17 years.  I live in Pueblo West with my husband, our 2 children and our dog.  My daughter, Ariella, is in sixth grade this year, and my son, Ammon, is a Sophomore in high school.  I have lived in Colorado for my whole life, and I love to hike in the mountains.  I enjoy practicing yoga, and I love to sing and write music.  

Making music with our young Bobcat musicians is a true joy for me.  If you ever have questions about music class at Bricker or would like to know more about extra-curricular musical opportunities for your child, please contact me.  I can be reached by email or phone.  I return phone calls on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

My Philosophy:

 Music is inherently connected to all disciplines we learn in school.  Music is an important aspect of our communities, our culture, and our history.  Sound is a science.  Music is a language.  Music theory is highly mathematical.  Music is also a great way to explore and express our thoughts and feelings.  I believe in the power of music.  Participating in musical activities contributes to brain development, and it can help us to self-regulate.  Music can bring people together. 

  I like to make music class as fun and engaging as possible.  I also hope to include an abundance of music literacy and music theory for the benefit of our young musicians.  I have learned that all human beings can become great musicians with enough practice.  In the music room, students will be analyzing music, moving to music, practicing performance skills, singing, playing instruments, and expressing original musical ideas. 

 

Quarter 3:

  The third quarter of the school year is all about pitch, melody, and harmony.  This is our most challenging quarter in music class, and it is my favorite!  

K - Kindergarten musicians are practicing high and low sounds with voices and instruments.  They will also begin writing in music journals.

1 - First-grade musicians are analyzing, reading, performing, and eventually composing with sounds that go up and down in pitch.

2 - Second-grade musicians are beginning to work with the musical staff.  They are analyzing, reading, performing, and eventually composing simple intervals (steps, skips, and repeats).

3-5 Third, fourth, and fifth-grade musicians are reading melodies on the staff.  They will continue moving through stations that allow them to learn to play piano, starting with rhythms and moving into melodies.  They will hopefully have composed their own melodies by spring break!
