Students in Pre-K 3 through 5th grade attend music class once a week. In a collaborative, fun, yet hard working atmosphere, students learn the basics of music literacy, using the movable-do system, hand signs for solfege syllables, rhythmic syllables, and solfa notation. Students are exposed to several genres of music and several mediums at which music is performed (choir, orchestra, band, etc.) to learn more about our world’s history and other cultures. Through purposeful practice, our young singers learn to manage, master, and refine simple, then complex, skills and techniques, and exhibit their artistry in two performances each year, the Christmas Concert in December and the Fine Arts Night in May.
Middle School Music (Treble Choir/Mixed Choir)
Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade may choose music as an elective to continue pursuing vocal and choral performance. Middle School Music Class is designed to help your student master the skills associated with the elements of music, including the appreciation and creation of choral music. Students will become proficient in sight-reading rhythmic and melodic music at an intermediate level. Performances are a crucial part of musical growth. Our yearly concerts include the Veteran’s Day Celebration, the Christmas Concert, the District Music Performance Assessments, and the Fine Arts Night, as well as field trips visiting local elder care communities, National Anthem performance at UF basketball games, and participation in the Annual Florida All-State Choirs.
