MUSIC

1

Understand

All students will understand how to perceive the elements of music.

2

Perform

All students will learn to read and perform music.

3

Demonstrate

Students will demonstrate an affective response to music and understand the role music plays in their faith.

Music study is essential to the education process because it develops:
  • Intellectual skills required to comprehend the language of music

  • Interpersonal skills through participation in general music, vocal, and instrumental ensembles

  • A broader understanding of history

  • An understanding of the role of music in other cultures

  • Performance skills commensurate with individual ability and interest

 

Music study is achieved by having the student:
  • PERFORM: developing musicianship through singing, playing instruments, and moving to music

  • CREATE: using the notational tools of music to express ideas, thoughts, and feelings; includes individual approaches to improvisation

  • INVESTIGATE: utilizing the study of music theory for music reading; analyzing the manner through which music is organized; making informed judgments about music and arts

  • CONNECT:  awareness of the commonality between music and other disciplines
