MUSIC EDUCATION

The Kodály Method is used to give the K-3 students the opportunity to learn to match tones in both the” head voice and chest voice”.  They read, write and play pitches and rhythms with classroom percussion instruments including Orff instruments.  Students also play music singing games that enhance the song they are learning.  Some use affirming parallel concepts among music, reading and math.  Most important, they sing, sing, sing.  A Spring Concert features each grade level.

BAND

Band is available to 5th 6th 7th and 8th grade students.  It is a full school year program that begins in the Fall.  Band is taught before school so that students will not have any pull-outs for lessons and sectionals and have more opportunity for additional classes.  Parents/Guardians must provide their own transportation.  Rental instruments are available through the school.  Concerts are held in the Winter and Spring featuring the Beginners as well as the Intermediate students.
