Lower School Music
Kindergarten – 2nd grade concentrate on rhythm studies, note values, musical notation, pitch, and learning the musical staff.
In 3rd & 4th grades students further develop their music theory and continual ear training by applying what they’ve learned to various instruments such as handbells, recorders, and xylophone bells.
In 5th & 6th grade, we transition to chorale, where music theory continues with key signatures, ear training, and solfege. Students are also introduced to two, three, and four part harmonies in preparation for chorale groups in the middle and upper schools.
