Music program in grades 3-5 is designed to reinforce the concepts learned in primary grades and to create a foundation for additional music study as children progress to middle school. Performing, composing, improvising, and listening are supported by discussion and reflection to enhance musical understanding. Students are exposed to digital sounds through working with midi- keyboards in a music computer lab. They learn different computer applications to explore, record, edit, and produce music. In addition to participating in general music class, students have the opportunity to begin band, choral, or small instrumental ensemble music studies.
