I believe music is essential to being human. It is incorporated into so many facets of life and society that it is hard to imagine life without it. Therefore, I believe every child has an inborn, natural right to experience and perform music.
In the elementary music classroom, we are constantly exploring. We explore pitch, duration, articulation, culture, texture, form, and style in new ways and in greater depth at each grade level. Music is naturally a performance subject so we are constantly "doing" in my classroom - singing, moving, performing on instruments, listening, acting, dancing, dicussing, and sharing. I believe this is the best way to experience and to explore all that is music.
Please don't hestiate to contact me with any questions about your child's experience in music!
