Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.” – Gerald Ford
At the elementary level, all students participate in music classes designed to adequately equip each student with a well-rounded set of basic skills and to build a love of music.
Each year builds on skills taught the year before, incorporating moving to the beat, singing with technique, developing music reading skills, discovering important historical music figures, and identifying instruments.
Students learn to play small instruments, building listening skills as they learn about rhythms and tempos. Our 4th graders learn to play the recorder and perform with other area 4th graders in the Link Up program.
Additional music classes are also offered throughout the school year. Sign ups are the beginning of each fall and spring semester. Classes include:
- Ukulele lessons
- Piano lessons
- Guitar lessons
