Music Class

  • The general music curriculum has been developed to promote growth in music literacy and an understanding of performance decorum as an audience member and performer. These goals are achieved by developing a comprehensive list of music repertoire that students will be able to audiate and use as reference to better understand different music principals.

  • In an effort to encourage music listening at home I have put together several youtube playlists on the Eagle School Music channel, where students can explore several genres of music.
