Singing campfire songs, performing in a musical or playing a musical instrument are just a few examples of the educational experiences students will participate in while at FPE. Students explore various musical devices such as recorders, boom whackers, hand bells and Orff instruments. The terminology of dance, drama and musicals is also examined. Depending on the grade level, students compose their own music using various instruments, learn note reading skills, and study the basics of rhythm. Each month students learn about the life of a composer and hear his music. The year winds down with a brief synopsis of music history that integrates the composers that were introduced throughout the year.
