Our Music Program

  • Grade 5 Beginning Chorus (semester)

    Grade Five Beginning Chorus is an introductory course that develops students’ musical knowledge and skills by introducing experiences in singing, pitch, rhythm, ear training, moving to music, part independence, sight reading, solfege, and takadimi. Exploration of music theory begins with solfege, and concludes with students learning increasingly difficult melody lines and rhythms, culminating in their being able to read simple musical phrases on their own. Students will also compare and contrast musical performances, and then use those evaluations to help develop the quality of their own music. 

    • Music Theory/Literacy
    • Performance
    • Music History and Cultural Context
    • Analysis, Evaluation, and Critique
    • Aesthetics
