Summer Music Enrichment
Online music games
At P.S. 214, our students engage in fun music making activities and discussions each week. Singing, dancing, instrumental skill, reading music notation, group games, and live performance make up the music curriculum. Student's ability to accurately match pitch (sing), establish "beat" competency (develop accurate rhythm in their body), and demonstrate music literacy (reading music notation) are four focuses of our program. Mastery of these skills (music achievements) are the building blocks of music learning and mastery will unlock potential (music aptitude) for fluent, joyful music making that will last a lifetime.
