Curriculum

At the simplest of levels, a musician is one who understands the language of music.  In our music program we begin the process of learning music as a language by emphasizing not just singing and playing instruments, but creating, performing and responding to music from many cultures and places around the world. 

In concept-based units, children experience:

  • Singing alone and with others a varied repertoire of music
  • Performing on instruments, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music
  • Improvising melodies, variations and accompaniments
  • Composing and arranging music within specified guidelines
  • Listening to, analyzing and describing music
  • Evaluating music and music performances
  • Understanding relationship between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts
  • Understanding music in relation to history and culture
