Study for the test


This year in Music class we are learning about note names and values, melody, and rhythm and are applying all of this new knowledge to interpreting and playing music on our clasroom instruments. We are also focusing on musical movement activities, musical stories, interactive technology, and the new national musical standards that are addressed in music. (See web link below)

State Board of Education believes that every student needs and deserves a high-quality, comprehensive education in all of the arts, including dance, music, theatre and the visual arts. The arts play an essential role in the daily lives of citizens in our society, and are essential to the expression of human experience. An understanding and appreciation of the arts, as well as the ability to participate in creating and performing the arts, are essential attributes of an educated person. There is also strong evidence that students educated in and through the arts achieve at higher levels in other areas of the curriculum and in their adult lives.
