Welcome to Music
This year your child will be participating in a class designed to foster a lifelong appreciation of music through active music making. The sequenced instruction will help your child develop musical skills and understanding, using music of various styles from the United States and around the world.
In addition to developing specific musical skills, your child’s studies in other areas will be enhanced by instruction that links concepts across the curriculum. Your child will be involved in activities such as musical storytelling and songwriting that support early literacy skills. Learning through music can build listening skills, enhance abstract thinking, improve memory, and encourage the use of compound words, rhymes, and images.
Your child will also have the opportunity to participate in school- wide performances, and you will be invited to attend or volunteer to assist with these performances.
