Junior School Music (Primary Grades)
The primary music program is a creative, experimental, and play-based approach. We combine the elements of speech, rhythm, movement, dance and song to solidify musical concepts. In Grade 2, students add a formal choral class to their music schedule, and in Grade 3, they begin studying the recorder.
Junior School Music (Junior Grades)
In Grade 4, students continue to learn recorder, ukulele and Orff instruments. In Grade 5, students are placed with a band instrument, either brass or woodwind. With opportunities to play in a beginning band in Grade 5 and a more established band in Grade 6, students have the opportunity to compete in CIS music festivals. In addition to class instruction, private lessons (including piano) are available on campus.
