The students of our school, grades K-5, participate in two music classes per week. In these music classes they are taught using the Kodaly method of music instruction. The goal of this Hungarian based method is to promote music literacy through the use of folk tunes and the child's own singing voice. Our goal is to help students discover that music is a language which they can read, write, and think in just as they do any other language. The process is a developmental and sequential one with new discoveries added in each grade level while all the time reviewing and practicing previously learned concepts and skills.
