Music classes are taught using the Orff approach, involving listening, movement, singing and other creative activities. Students develop skills in music theory and instrumental music, playing instruments such as the xylophone and other percussion instruments. Students perform at weekly Inspirations and at holiday and spring concerts, showcasing the curriculum. Students also are introduced to movement and dance.

We introduce students to rhythm, pitch, meter and dynamics — they begin to recognize notes and rests, high and low pitches, fast and slow meter and soft and loud dynamics. Students are introduced to fundamental music terms and vocabulary and learn about the connections between movement and music.
