Class II Music

Department: 

Objectives of Class II music include sound-to-symbol familiarity with pillar pentatonic intervals, an increase of the student's singing range and skills with consistent pitch matching, elementary piano keyboard fluency, and the musical independence of each learner. Students sing folk songs and games, and perform holiday and spring concerts as a choir. They learn to conduct four-meter time and stepping and skipping rhythms. They perform, improvise, and compose. Use of the piano lab enriches their musical literacy. They read absolute pitch in treble and bass staves, learn keyboard/staff relationships, and develop proper technique. Activities focus on classical music
