In music for Pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade, Lower School students will have many opportunities to foster a lifelong appreciation of music through active music making. The students will develop musical skills such as note reading, rhythms, identifying musical styles, moving to the steady beat, and playing on rhythm instruments as well as the recorder. They will have the opportunity to explore music from all around the world. Lower School students will also participate in mini-musicals throughout the year developing both their musical and stage skills. Beginning in first grade, students may participate in an after school chorus as well.
As a continuation of the lower school curriculum, the fifth grade year in music is a transition of very similar activities with a greater focus on the recorder. This transition helps prepare the students for other middle school opportunities in upcoming years such as chorus, strings, and band.
