WELCOME TO MUSIC CLASS!

We meet twice a week throughout the school year for thirty minutes on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Our classroom curriculum consists of grade level appropriate general music theory including instruction in rhythm, dynamics, music notation and symbols. We use The Musitraks Series as our workbooks. Students are also introduced to Great Composers and their music, different periods in music history and the instruments of the orchestra. In addition, we learn and rehearse vocal music for weekly chapel, our school’s annual Christmas Worship Service and the Spring Concert which precedes Open House.
