Our Music Program


The goals for the music curriculum are based on the National Music Standards which include the three artistic processes: Performing, Responding and Creating. In fourth grade music we focus on vocal and rhythmic development as well as reading and writing music. We continue with listening lessons to learn about the music of different cultures and styles of music. We perform on simple melody and rhythm instruments(Orff) and folk dancing. In addition, we learn to play the keyboard which is a fun way to learn music and perform.

There are many opportunities throughout the year for your child to experience the joy of sharing music with others.  We have several concerts listed below.

Other performances and events at CIS can be viewed on our “Music” web site.
