The St. Clare music program consists of several activities that are shared across the school along with leveled lessons based on grade level.
School-wide musical lessons and experiences include:
- Christmas pageant
- Musical appreciation
In addition to these, elementary students complete a “Sing, Sing, Sing!” unit covering seasonal songs and basic choreography.
Fourth and fifth grade students work towards their “karate belt” requirements as set out at the beginning of the year. By the end of this year each student should achieve six belts, which signify completing six different levels of difficulty in the reading and performing up instrumental music.
Middle school students participate in units on famous composers, styles of music in today’s culture, and composing music using technology, musical theater and American dances.
