K-6 General Music
Elementary students have music class twice every six days. Students in Grades 1-6 meet for thirty minutes. Kindergarten meets for twenty-five minutes twice every six days.
We utilize the finest leaders in music educational philosophies, including Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly to focus on the main areas of music education:Singing, Playing, Listening, Performing, Melody, Rhythm,
Creating, Expressive Qualities and Movement
In addition to playing classroom rhythmic and melodic instruments, students also have the opportunity to learn how to play the recorder and ukulele during his or her time at LGES.
When possible, music learning is integrated with the other arts, as well as other classroom subject areas. Three composers are studied each year to expose students to varied musical genres.
The use of technology is a focus in our learning throughout the year as well.
