Music

Welcome to Our Music Site

The music program in Hunters Creek Elementary offers every child experiences which will help to enhance his perspectives, influence his value choices, and shape his life.

Our classroom activities are based upon the Kodaly concept of music education in which musical literacy is the ultimate objective. In music class the atmosphere is one in which: (1) skill building materials are taken from previously learned folk and art songs that have been presented sensitively and accurately by the teacher; (2) joyous participation and artistic performances are pursued with the students.

Musical understanding is achieved through singing, clapping and reading music, playing instruments, and using body movements. We believe music is an art and its benefits are in direct proportion to active participation. Walk into a music class at Hunters Creek and find smiles, laughter, and lots of acceptance!
