The KIS Song

We’re KIS!


The KIS Song

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

They say that knowledge is power
And I’m a powerful girl
With my feet firmly planted
And my head in a whirl

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

I’m filled with inspiration
By the things around me
From music and dancing
To the birds in the trees

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

I’m filled with the spirit
That life was made for me
Surrounded by friendship
I know that I can be

The world is changing every day
But I’ll learn new things on the way
I’ll go the distance to make a difference
‘Til I can finally say

We’ve got the knowledge
Inspiring Individuals
We’re filled with the spirit of learning
The spirit of loving
The spirit of joy and we’re blessed
We’re KIS

Welcome Back!

download (1)
Welcome to a new year of music making here at KIS. We have many exciting things in store and many new things to learn.
Our first unit, Inspiring Individuals, a school-wide unit, takes a look at our quality learning behaviours and how they look in the music classes.

At KIS we believe that quality learning behaviours include:

Striving for understanding
Developing our passions
An inclusive and caring community
Taking ethical action.

How do we do this in the music classes?

The science of sound

We have been inquiring into sound and the science behind it. Here are some videos that tell you a lot about sound:

Here are some cool sound experiments you can do at home:

Test your parents’ hearing with the following age test. See who hears the sound first, you or your mum and dad?
I couldn’t hear them at all!

How old are your ears?

E-learning

Compose a piece of music for percussion instruments using a graphic score and non-traditional notation.

Let’s see how that could work…….

First pick a sound:

Thud!

Now pick a symbol for that sound, here’s an idea for one…

>

So now, > makes a thud sound whenever you see it written down!

Pick a symbol for each of these sounds:

Thud
Crash
Beep
Rattle
Jingle-jangle

Then combine them to make and write down a piece of music. Here’s an example:

Thud . >
Crash X
Beep . P
Rattle . Z
Jingle-jangle . #

Let’s write music with these symbols by placing them together:

>>Z> XXP##XXP##>ZZZ

Now try to play it!

Show me what you have done when we return to school and let’s play it together!
