Young people need positive outlets for creative self-expression, and many have a keen interest in the performing arts. Musical study develops critical thinking, self-discipline, self-esteem, self-confidence and teamwork. 

The content of our music curriculum is intended to support the following goals for our youth:

  • Develop understanding of music through musical experiences including singing, playing instruments, performing, composing, listening, and responding to music with movement.

  • Develop the ability to read and notate music.

  • Create works of music that transcribe their thoughts and emotions into forms of musical expression.

  • Exercise critical-thinking skills by investigating and analyzing all facets of the music discipline.

  • Demonstrate awareness of and responsibility for the safe and responsible use of materials, equipment, methods, and technologies.

  • Demonstrate understanding of the relationship of music to history and culture.

  • Make connections between music and other fields of knowledge.

  • Nurture a lifelong appreciation for music as an integral component of an educated, cultured society.

Our focus will not only be the ability to read music and/or play an instrument, but the ability to create within a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) which is necessary in the modern era for a successful producer or instrumentalist. 

The goal is to serve as the foundation for further music instruction. Students will be introduced to basic musical concepts through singing, playing instruments, listening, experimenting with a DAW and responding to music with movement. Emphasis is placed on beginning to obtain musical knowledge, skills, and understanding as performers, composers, producers and listeners. Students investigate personal feelings and preferences evoked by musical experiences.
