Our music program is based upon the enrichment of students' lives through the development of their inherent musicality. Readiness, skill level, and activity preference vary among children. Therefore, a variety of media are used to develop each child's maximum musical potential. We believe that children learn musical behavior by listening, creating and performing.
The various media used in the elementary music program include speech, movement, song, instruments and listening. Students are provided with the opportunity to participate in chorus, a select chorus (Harmonia), recorder band, concert band, symphonic band, and jazz band.
