Music Classes



Once a week, the children have an opportunity to discover melody, form, harmony, style, rhythm, and expression through singing a perse array of songs, playing numerous instruments, moving, notating, listening, dramatizing, and creating.

In Kindergarten, we sing with the use of Curwen hand signs, invent accompaniments on classroom instruments, link music with language literacy, and develop a repertoire of traditional songs and dances.

In First Grade, we move, move, move! We use scarves to define expression in music, create dances to embellish a composition, or add instrumental accompaniments to literature.

In Second Grade, we begin to recognize inspirational stories of famous composers, learn to work cooperatively in small groups, discover the language of notation, and create hand jives.

In Third Grade, we discover the joy and trials of playing a recorder, delve into the study of instrument of the orchestra and band, develop music literacy, and compose inpidual music pieces.
