Providing music for communication and expression

Our academic program is strengthened through the fine arts. Studies prove that music education has positive effects on language skills, memory aptitude, mental concentration, and self-esteem. Opportunities for performance and public speaking build confidence within our students as they cooperate together to present musical programs for appreciative audiences. Music training provides our young students with varied avenues of expression and communication. Our music classes allow each student to open up by sharing the joy and pleasures of listening to and making music. Much learning takes place within our music program as students are instructed in:

  • Expressive singing
  • Melody and harmony
  • Music reading
  • Ear training and listening skills
  • Elements of music such as pitch, meter, rhythm, dynamics, and tempo
  • Music heritage including famous composers, folk songs, and patriotic music
  • Knowledge of the instrument families
