Every student at Grange Hall Elementary has music once a week for 45 minutes. Using the Virginia State Standards of Learning in Music framework and curriculum, we explore music in a variety of ways. This includes playing different instruments from African tubano drums to xylophones and tambourines. Fourth graders focus on the recorders. We also explore music through movement and song, learn about music theory, music history, and different cultures, using 21st century technology and student collaboration. I hope to enrich students’ lives through a positive experience that allows them to learn about music while expressing themselves creatively and instilling a lifelong love of music.
