This year students will develop basic music skills that prepare them to be independent musicians and performers. Through musical experiences students will learn about rhythms, pitches, musical form, timbre and expression in music. They will also learn about music from various cultures through song, dance, and playing rhythm instruments from around the world. Students will further build and utilize their musical skills through creating/composing and improvising music.
“Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.” -Plato
