Third Grade Music

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 are introduced to the soprano recorder and to the World Music Drumming curriculum. They deepen and develop their music literacy with rhythm, pitch, meter and dynamics, and learn Spanish folk dances.
