4th Grade

Our fourth graders will be continuing their journey learning the violin! Learning this challenging instrument will help them learn artistry, musicianship, determination, dedication, resiliency, and work ethic. In addition, we will continue working on singing and learning composition and music theory through our work with the computer lab and ipads.

Violin Materials

On this section I will be posting PDF’s of the music the students are working on. They should know what they are looking for. Feel free to print or download the PDF’s for the students to use at home.

Violin Tuning

This will hopefully help your violin. The app I mention in the video is called “simply tuner”. It cannot be pushed to your school ipad. I will keep looking for one that can be pushed to school ipads. Email me if you need help tuning! iferguson@mssd14.org

Violin Piano Accompaniment videos

Here are some piano accompaniments to play along with. If you can’t play as fast as the video, keep practicing! I will add other songs as I get them recorded.

No One Is Alone

No one here to guide you now you’re on your own
Only me beside you still your not alone
No one is alone truly no one is alone

Sometimes people leave you half-way through the wood
Others may deceive you, you decide what’s good
You decide alone but no one is alone

People make mistakes, father’s, mother’s
People make mistakes holding to their own
Thinking they’re alone

Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes
One another’s terrible mistakes

Witches can be right, giants can be good
You decide what’s right, you decide whats good
Just remember

Someone is on your side, someone else is not
Well we’re seeing our side maybe we forgot
They are not alone, no one is alone

Hard to see the light now just don’t let it go
Things will come out right now, we can make it so

Someone is on your side, no one is alone

Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing

Everybody’s got a thing
But some don’t know how to handle it
Always reachin’ out in vain
Just taking the things not worth havin’

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama
‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it out

They say your style of life’s a drag
That you must go other places
Just don’t you feel too bad
When you get fooled by smiling faces

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama ‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it

out When you get off your trip

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing

Ba ba ba ba ba etc.

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama ‘Cause I’ll be standing on the side when you check it

out When you get off your trip

Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
You’re the only one who see
The changes you take yourself through

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing, Mama
‘Cause I’ll be standin’ in the side when you check it out

Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
Don’t you worry ’bout a thing
