Choral music at the elementary level is taught in every grade and even four year old preschool students attend music class each week. Students begin by learning to identify notes and simple rhythms and progress to performing simple two-part music.
Students showcase their lessons in song and drama during the annual Christmas performances, Grandparents' Day, and the Elementary Spring Program. It is always a treat to see our young students sparkle for Jesus.
The fourth and fifth grades also have the opportunity to choose an instrument that appeals to them and delve into learning how to play their chosen instrument, reinforcing how to read music and rhythms.
After School Choir
Third through fifth grade students may audition for the elementary after school choir. This choir meets weekly and learns more difficult pieces. They perform at school concerts as well as competitions and exhibitions outside of school. Heaven's Melodies is welcomed at a variety of retirement communities to share their gifts for God's glory.
