School music programs are essential to the life-long learning process of students. Research has shown that the study of music develops higher-order thinking skills and can increase mathematical, linguistic, kinesthetic, and musical intelligence and enhances spatial and abstract reasoning abilities.
Our elementary music program includes four key areas of study appropriate for each grade level:
- Singing alone or with others
- Playing classroom instruments alone or with others
- Reading and notating music
- Listening, analyzing, and evaluating music
Fifth graders also have the option of Instrumental Music, including a focus on instrumental technique, musical concepts, music reading, and the application of skills.
