The study of general music in our elementary school focuses on the development of appreciation, understandings, and attitudes essential to music literacy. Students experience music through a variety of related activities, which include listening, singing, moving, and playing melodic and choral instruments. Emphasis is placed on exploration, appreciation, creativity, expression, and enjoyment. The music curriculum is aligned with the RI Arts Framework and all students have music class with a certified music teacher once every three days for 45 minutes.
