WAEC Music Education

Welcome to the Wattsburg Area Elementary Center music education homepage! 
 
  I am Mrs. Lesley Lopez and I have been the music teacher at WAEC for 17 years.  I have taught music for a total of 28 years. During my career I have taught Kindergarten through Eighth grade in a school setting, and Pre-school through College students in a private piano and voice setting.  I have a Bachelors of Music Education degree from West Virginia University and a Masters of Music degree from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati.  As a musician I have been the conductor of the adult choir at Our Lady of Peace church in Erie for eighteen years, I teach piano and voice lessons, and I sing professionally.
 
 Our elementary students attend music class for forty minutes, once every four school days.  During their music class time, the students learn about the six basic elements of music:  Rhythm, Melody, Harmony, Form, Tone Color, and Expressive Elements.  They explore these elements through singing, listening, moving, playing instruments, and creating (composing) their own music.
 
 The textbook that is used for students in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade music is the "Spotlight on Music" textbook, published by Macmillan / McGraw - Hill, copyright 2005.
 
 The elementary students in grades one through four perform on the stage in our auditorium once a year.  This year, 2015-16, the First and Second grade classes will perform a holiday concert in December and the Third and Fourth grade classes will be performing a musical in May.
