All Lascassas Elementary students receive 45 minutes of music per week. Music classes are based on hands-on learning. Students learn about music by CREATING, RESPONDING, CONNECTING, and PERFORMING to music and musical concepts. The National Association for Music Education’s National Standards for Music Education are the cornerstone in which each lesson built upon.

Students are being introduced to the ta-ka-di-mi rhythm counting system as well as reading rhythms with numbers. Students also learn and apply the sol-fa singing system of moveable do. 

All students will also be learning about and experiencing music by using the Lascassas Music Mac Lab. The music room has 12 iMac computers which students will be using to create, compose, respond, and learn about music and music concepts.
5th grade students will be working on recorder using the Recorder Karate curriculum. Recorders may be purchased at any music store. 5th graders will also be learning about and playing ukulele.

4th graders will begin recorder in the Spring semester and will also participate in the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Word and Music Program.
