Elementary Education:  Music Curriculum

General Music

Music education utilizes GAMEPlan K by Kriske/DeLelles as the primary resource. 

The General Music classes include experiences in singing, movement, basic theory, and playing rhythmic and melodic instruments. The program is designed to help students develop sensitivity toward music, understand a variety of cultures and express themselves musically. 

Elementary level lessons and activities are based on the nine National Standards for Music Education: 
  1. Singing, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music 
  2. Performing on instruments, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music 
  3. Improvising melodies, variations, and accompaniments

  7. Evaluating music and music performances 
  8. Understanding relationships between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts
