The rudiments of melody, rhythm, harmony, texture, form, articulation, and aesthetic enjoyment are all studied in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Skills are introduced at various grade levels and developed throughout the program.
Music from a variety of styles and diverse cultures is used to explore and demonstrate all skills mentioned. Students participate in singing, circle games, instrument playing, recorder playing, music listening, written games and activities, reading, and online musical resources. In 5th - 8th grades, students continue their instrumental music instruction by playing a band instrument.
