General Music: Students explore the essential elements of 20th- and 21st-century music in America and global cultures. Participants focus on the creation, use, and performance of music; and the modes of listening, distributing, and gaining access to music.
Students develop piano skills performing piano music of various styles and appropriate difficulty levels. Within a standards based curriculum students learn music notation and develop listening skills by identifying and analyzing elements and structural characteristics of music.
Strings/Orchestra – Elementary (K-4): Students who have little or no experience on violin, viola, cello, bass, or harp explore high-quality music literature written or transcribed for developing string orchestra. Study includes the development of foundational instrumental ensemble techniques, performance skills, music literacy, and aesthetic awareness. Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals.
Concert Band: This class, designed for students ready to build on skills and knowledge previously acquired in a middle or High School (9-12) instrumental ensemble, promotes the enjoyment and appreciation of music through performance of high-quality wind and percussion literature. Rehearsals focus on development of critical listening/aural skills, individual musicianship, instrumental technique, refinement of ensemble skills, and aesthetic engagement culminating in periodic public performances.
Students learn how music is constructed and developed, and acquire a basic understanding of the structural, technical, and historical elements of music. Student theorists develop basic ear-training, keyboard, and functional singing skills, and engage in the creative process through individual and collaborative projects.
