Lower School Music Program

Our Lower School music program takes a revolutionary approach to elementary music instruction. Students are empowered to express themselves confidently and inspired to begin a lifelong enjoyment of music.

PK-K Music

Our early childhood music program focuses on developing individual musical skills and includes singing, rhythmic activities, moving to music, musical games, and playing percussion instruments. Through play and musical story units, these activities create the foundation for our students to perform, create, respond and connect with music at each grade level.

K-3 Violin Program

Our K -3rd grade Violin Program offers “minds on” and “hands on” learning by interweaving the psycho-motor, affective and cognitive domains of knowledge. The creativity and musical thinking developed through the study of instrumental music fosters critical thinking, problem solving skills and cultural awarness. Students sing and play a variety of music on their instruments.

4th and 5th grade Music

Our 4th and 5th grade music program also integrates vocal and instrumental training for all students and builds upon their strong musical foundation by continuing to develop their musical literacy and musical thinking. All students elect to be a part of the Band or Orchestra and hone their vocal and instrumental music performance skills and experience the joy of music-making that is unique to playing and singing with an ensemble.
