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.

Students continue to develop literacy at this level. They learn note values to the whole note, and are introduced to the staff. Students learn about beats in twos or threes and about tempo. They expand their understanding of rhythm, pitch, meter and dynamics. Lessons in American Folk dances, such as the circle dance, develop connections between movement and music.
