Our music teacher holds weekly music education classes for all primary and intermediate students that include instruction in music theory and basic concepts for reading music. In each grade, students put their skills to practical use as they learn to play a variety of musical instruments. Kindergarten and first grade students play rhythmic instruments; second graders play hand bells; third graders play the flutophone; and fourth and fifth graders play the recorder. The ultimate purpose is for students to be able to play a simple melody line, such as an easy American folk song or hymnal. The music teacher also conducts a junior high choir or string ensemble, assisting them with performances on and off campus throughout the year.
