Preschool Music Education

Music is an important part of early literacy development for preschool learners.   Teachers create Listening Areas that include different musical devices with which the students can interact.  Children learn to repeat familiar songs, predict lyrics, and sing with others over the course of their school days—all which contribute to stronger literacy skills and language development.

School Age Programs Music Education

Our school age programs both a full-time music teacher who splits time between the two schools.  Music education consists of singing, instrument playing, and performing age-appropriate and adequately challenging material.  Students develop verbal ability as well as fine motor skills in an environment that allows exciting participation and musical exploration.  There are also bi-annual concerts where the students perform group numbers and in some cases, particularly talented and hard-working students give solo performances of some of their favorite songs.wMHS-music-01
