Overview of Elementary Music
All elementary students get the chance to participate in TWO music classes per week. They go once a week to a general music class and then again to a choir class. In both classes Students are taught musical notes using the Sophege method. They also have the chance to use Drums, Orff instruments, and Boomwhackers to work on rhythm.
