Elementary School - Grades 2-5

The elementary students focus on singing, playing different musical instruments, improvising and composing melodies, reading and notating music, as well as analyzing, evaluating and integrating music with other academic disciplines.

In Grade 2, the students begin to experience working musically with others by creating their own bands; providing the instrumental accompaniment to familiar songs while other students sing and make action movements.

Learning about and participating in music ensembles teaches critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, discipline, creativity and self esteem; skills that are transferable in all academic fields and other aspects of daily life through to adulthood.
