Maureen Adkins - 5th Grade Music

5th Grade Music

5th grade music combines movement, singing, dancing, African drumming, and playing the Orff (barred) instruments to create a sound foundation in music.
5th graders are working hard to learn songs from Willy Wonka, their play, scheduled in late April. Rehearsals on stage begin right after spring break. Please join us in the gymnasium for the annual music program on May 9 at 10:00 a.m. It is called "Music, Movement, Mallets, and More" for a reason! It's 40 minutes of singing, dancing, drumming, and much more. This year the program will be live-streamed to our YouTube page!

Welcome to Music here at The Anthony School. I am in my 26th year teaching here. I love to teach music and hope to engage my students to love to learn. I knew from an early age that music was my passion. I received my Masters degree in Music from the University of Mississippi.
My husband, Rick, and I have 2 daughters. Sarah lives in Fayetteville, and Laura is a teacher here at TAS. I have 5 grandchildren: Lily (10), Hudson(9), Caroline(6), Claire(4), and Cate (3). I love being a grandmother! Lily is in the fifth grade and Claire is in PreK4 here at TAS. Both of my daughters were students here at The Anthony School, also. Our family and The Anthony School have been closely connected for many years!
