Beginning with 4th grade we learn the staff and it’s components: note values, lines and spaces. Students are introduced to Sight Singing (Solfege). They learn about how “DO” can move and how it is applied to all keys. Listening to World Music they can develop their musical ears in different musical styles.
The history of the great composers and their music gets great attention from the students: Mozart, Beethoven etc.
We incorporate song whichsong, which corresponds to each IB Unit as well. (This is applied in all grades)
