Music

The Music Standards of Learning for kindergarten through grade five introduce basic music concepts through singing, playing instruments, moving, and listening.  Students will gradually develop their singing voices, a repertoire of songs, and a sense of rhythm beginning with the steady beat and continuing toward complex rhythms and meters.  Movement experiences are included as a means of demonstrating an understanding of concepts such as pitch, rhythm, and form.  Listening experiences include traditional and contemporary classical works, American folk music, and music of other cultures.  Through these experiences, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate and apply an understanding of music concepts.
