In general music class, students are exposed to a variety of activities designed to broaden musical experiences and develop skills. Listening activities help develop the child’s perception of music. A musical response is generated through movement, rhythmic activities, singing and playing instruments. The student is also encouraged to create and organize sounds into musical patterns.

All students have the option to participate in chorus. Rehearsals are held during the school day, and performances occur throughout the school year, including at the District Arts Festival held in May. The experience of rehearsing and performing before an audience is a valuable means of developing a genuine appreciation of music performance, as well as reinforcing habits of cooperation and self-discipline.

In addition to general music, several electives are available each semester, including instrumental instruction.
