Introduction to the Pirate Power Band
The Pleasant Hope R-6 Music Curriculum provides the foundation for quality music instruction for middle and high school students and represents the core program for which all music courses are accountable. The curriculum has three goals:
- To clearly articulate what every student should know, understand, and be able to do in music in each specialization (general, choral, instrumental) and at each level;
- To align with the current Missouri Content Standards for Music; and
- To reduce the breadth of music content at each specialization and level so that concepts can be explored in greater depth.
The instrumental courses offered to students include both Beginner Band and Combined 7-12 Band. The curriculum provides substantive frameworks to guide teacher instruction. The curriculum also communicates to parents and the community what skills and concepts are emphasized at each level. As students grow musically, opportunities also grow with increased access to performing ensembles such as marching, jazz, and chamber groups, as well as solo opportunities.
