The Middle School Music department believes that music can be an enriching and rewarding component to students’ lives, for the rest of their lives. Building on the skills explored in earlier grades, all Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Grade students take general music classes that reinforce and develop the fundamentals of music literacy as well as provide opportunities for each student to experience the unique benefits of active music making. Major units include world drumming, ukulele and guitar, and composition and arranging. Music technology will be also incorporated and emphasized throughout the curriculum.
