Mrs. Curran -- Music Education

        Welcome to the PWS music education page! I am excited to help your student(s) develop a life-long love of music. Students in grades one through four visit the music room once a week for a 40 minute class. We will explore different types of music, play instruments, learn about various composers, learn to be part of a musical group, learn to read and create music, sing, move and have fun! This site will be updated monthly with happenings from the music room. I will also update important chorus information throughout the year in preparation for  our concerts. Please take a moment to look around to find out more about music class. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the musical development of your child.
