CCS Vocal Program

Elementary Music

Emphasis is placed on music as a God-given expression of praise and worship. Students learn to appreciate all types of music. Songs and dramatic readings are chosen on the basis of their content and quality. Scripture songs are woven throughout the fabric of school life. Various methods of instruction, such as vocal, instrumental, and rhythm are used. Examples of the type of music included are patriotic, character and appropriate fun songs. As the fundamentals of music are taught, students learn the importance of individual and group praise, artistic performance, and excellence in accuracy and quality. Students in all grades experience Orff instruments and bells. Recorders are a part of the experience of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.
