A.E. Butler Music
A.E. Butler Elementary Music
A.E. Butler students attend music class once a week for 50 minutes. Within each class we talk about our Composer of the Week, learn and review rhythm syllables and solfege syllables and we apply those syllables to the song we are learning in class. We also play a variety of instruments including: Boomwhackers, xylophones, egg shakers, rhythm sticks, tambourines and ukuleles. Each grade level also has a grade level performance each year. In addition to what we learn in class, students also participate in various performances with the ACE after school program. Here is a glimpse into what we are doing right now!
Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn Kids
A.E. Butler Intermediate School and the ACE Program performed Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn KIDS on March 30, 2022 at 7:00pm in the Ford High School Auditorium.
Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn KIDS is an adaptation of the second of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an age of knights in shining armor, where the two discover the power of hope and the true meaning of gallantry.
The QISD ACE After-School Program, in collaboration with the FHS Theatre Department, held a performance on March 31, 2022
Directed by Aleia Wardlow, these students worked together to bring this classic story to life.
