MAY 2019 – MUSIC GRADES 4-8 

Music classes for grades 4 through 8 end on June 5.  Thank you everyone for a productive year!  Together we made progress in a number of areas, including: establishing basic music reading skills; developing vocal technique and singing with confidence and learning the basics of hand bell ringing.  The concert on May 7 demonstrated advancement in each of these areas.  I thank parents and guardians for supporting the education of their children at Catholic Academy.  And I thank students for their willingness to learn.  Have an enjoyable summer!

Mission statement:

The goal of the general Music curriculum is to provide students with the skills they need to be active participants in music. Students will learn the fundamentals of music, basic music theory and history through an interactive program. Through the use of games, songs and movement activities, students will learn the skills they need to create their own music. Students will be encouraged to create their own music by contributing ideas for class vocal and instrumental pieces. Students will also learn the vocabulary needed to critique music from many different genres, cultures, and time periods. It is our hope to instill an appreciation and enjoyment for music that students will carry with them through all of elementary school, junior high and beyond
