Music Curriculum

Pre-K – 2nd gr. Main focus: singing, beat keeping, movement. Students at this age work to find their singing voice and develop accurate pitch. Music vocabulary is introduced (rhythm, melody, steady beat, etc.) and students learn to read simple notation. Beat keeping and movement activities are in each lesson so students begin to feel and tap that steady beat, so necessary for all musicians. Practice accomplished through rousing games and dancing and playing of instruments! Students build a song repertoire of seasonal, patriotic and folk songs.

3rd – 5th gr. Main focus: development of music reading skills; introduction to great music and musicians.
Students at this age build on music reading skills and demonstrate these through singing and use of instruments such as Orff instruments, drums and recorder. Great composers and their music are studied as well as famous musicians. New concepts are practiced through games and the playing of instruments. Recorder instruction begins in the 4th grade and continues through 6th grade.

6th gr. Main focus: Music History and piano. Students continue to build on music reading skills and recorder playing. Students begin to write music notation starting with the C Scale. Students are introduced to piano and work independently to learn songs and exercises. Music history is taught and covers 4 time periods (Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical). Connections to world events during these periods are made and discussed. Games and Orff ensemble playing are still important learning tools at this level.

7th -8th gr. Main focus: Chorus and Band. Chorus and band are offered for these grades. Band is taught by a separate teacher, Mr. Smith. Mrs. Schallock teaches chorus. Chorus and band are elective classes (students must sign up for it). Chorus focuses on group singing, learning proper vocal technique and public performances. Students who love to sing are encouraged to join. In addition to singing together, students develop a bond which can continue to high school.

Music Activities throughout the year: Assembly programs such as Folk Tales and Folk Dancing program, Veterans’ Day and Christmas Sing-a-long. Chorus performances for area nursing homes, Jackson County Honors Youth Choir (5th/6th gr. only); Jackson County Middle School Choral Day (7th/8th gr. only) and Fairview Talent Show.
