K-6 General Music
The St. John school music program works to develop foundational musical skills in our students, while encouraging every student to find joy and purpose in the musical experience. All students learn to use and develop their singing voice, while also learning a variety of instruments such as xylophones, hand chimes, recorders, and percussion instruments. Other classroom activities include movement exploration, folk dancing, notation reading and musical composition. The primary curriculum source is the rich hymnody of the Church, while also incorporating elements of folk music, popular songs, and music from other cultures. St. John students participate frequently in weekend worship services, lead a school Christmas service, and perform music classroom highlights in a fall Music Revue.
