Music and More

Music notes with headphones

We are so excited to introduce our new music program! In January we will begin our study of the magic of music. Each month we will focus on a specific genre of music. During each unit a professional musician or group of musicians will visit the school to perform for the children. The children will have the opportunity to meet the musicians, ask questions, as well as learn about the instruments being played during their private concert.

Learning all about the orchestra is our first unit. What instruments make up an orchestra? What is the difference between a wind instrument and a percussion instrument? How do they play together and sound beautiful? What does the conductor do? What types of music does an orchestra play?

Our guest in January is a concert violinist who travels the world by invitation to perform as the featured solo violinist with well-known orchestras.
