Elementary students in grades 1-6 participate in music specials and study notation, duration, production and music history. The great works and their composers are also taught and experienced. These students also play instruments (recorders, ukuleles, guitar and general band instruments). Students in grades 5 and 6 choose to specialize in either choral or instrumental music and meet multiple times a week for instruction.
Parents are always welcome in the music room, and classes often do short performances with their teacher at the end of their music rotation. The music room is also bustling with activity on Cottage Fair nights with performances and even parent participation!
EDUPRIZE also has band (grades 5-8), orchestra (grades 4-8) and choir (grades 3-6). There are several performances throughout the year that highlight how far the students have come. The EDUPRIZE music program continues to grow and incorporate advanced technologies.
