Remote Learning – Music at OLG!

Hello, OLG Students and Parents!  Welcome to PreS thru 5th Grade Music Class!  I certainly miss dancing and singing with all the students but it is fun and easy for them to continue learning at home.  Each class has a 30-minute Music Class twice a week.  While at home, I hope that even a few minutes spent singing, dancing, and learning will be enjoyable and educational (even for the grown-ups)!  Email me at any time:  asager@guadalupe-school.org

✯ ✯ For Week 7, May 4-8 ✯ ✯

Theme:  Lean On Me!


  • EVERYONE!  I’m trying to make a group video.
  • If “Lean On Me” goes well, I will offer additional songs to make a virtual SPRING CONCERT!
  • This is not mandatory.  I’m trying to see if we can make this work.  If it’s too hard, I get it.
    • PRACTICE!
      • Please practice with this video a few times.
      • To see the lyrics in Youtube, turn on CC (closed captioning) or Subtitles (in Settings)
    • RECORD!
      • This video is an example of how your video should sound.
      • The musical track should be only in your ear.
      • Record just your face and voice; no musical track.
      • Be sure to do the countdown and clap at the beginning!  It helps me sync up the videos more easily.
    • UPLOAD!
    • PLEASE TRY!
      • I know some of you CAN’T make a video easily — that’s ok.
      • Some of you DON’T WANT to make a video — that’s ok, too.  But “Lean On Me” is a great song for these weird times and it would be wonderful to have your face and your voice in the video!
