Music

Music is the voice of the soul.

Education

In Music our educational focus is tailored for the individual grades.  In Kindergarten through Second grade, we focus on songs, games, percussion instruments to practice pitch and rhythm.  We begin specialized instruments in higher grades with violins in 3rd grade and recorders in 4th grade, and all grades enjoy the keyboarding unit each spring.  Fifth graders work on music with more singing in parts and learn music theory.  Our culmination each semester is our performances:  Christmas musicals (K-2 and 3-5), and 4th & 5th grade Spring concert.  Third graders also enjoy an integrated curriculum for Titanic Day (promenade, songs, and dance), as well as preparing songs for Manor Care performances.  We use technology in the spring for all students with music games, and piano keyboards.
