Welcome to Mrs. Abarro's music class!
The purpose of music classes here at SFR is to teach all students the fundamentals of making, creating and performing music on various classroom instruments such as the xylophone, recorder, hand bells and non-pitched percussion instruments like the maracas, drums and tambourines. We also teach the foundations of sight singing that prepares the children to be active participants in the musical parts of the Catholic mass.
Studying music helps create a well-rounded student. Students who are involved in music often have better math and language skills. They tend to have better organizational and time management skills as well as higher levels of achievement on standardized state tests.
