Allen Elementary Shcool


James Mcclary

Welcome to Mr. McClary's Music Classroom!
Each student rotates to music class once a week for a 50 minute block of music-focused instructional time.

Within that time, students should expect to participate in active listening, singing, instrument play, movement, games and social dance. By acquiring an internal repertoire of quality musical examples and experiences, students will develop performance skills and techniques, further their musical literacy, explore conventions in music composition, and understand connections from music to life other academic disciplines.

In addition, Mr. McClary assists during Bull Dog Fridays and helps produce unique programming experiences like guest performers, grade level performances, karaoke and other events enhanced by audio/visual technology.

Beginning in 4th grade, students are eligible to join the after-school choir, ChorAllen, directed by Mr. McClary. See the ChorAllen website for further details on calendar and registration.
