Elementary Music  (All)  (1 hour)

DESCRIPTION: 

Hans Christian Andersen once declared, "Where words fail, music speaks." Music is so unique and beautiful and speaks to our souls in such profound ways.  This semester we are going to creatively explore different types of classical and Christian music in order to gain a deeper appreciation for music. The students will learn about basic music theory through fun, hands-on activities while listening to and singing a diversity of songs for children.  They will study the structure of an orchestra, as well as learn how to play hand bells, drums, and several other rhythm instruments.
