Musical experiences, especially those that happen in a group, can be a great parallel for life. They help build community through encouraging active listening and creativity. They can also provide opportunities to develop important life skills like self-expression, patience, responsibility, and teamwork.
At KAS, the goal of each music class is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our young musicians to grow emotionally, mentally and physically as they enjoy music and develop their individual musicality.
During music class, students are exposed to rich musical traditions from around the world as they engage in singing, movement, folk dancing and listening activities. Students also learn about / use various musical instruments and explore different facets of music theory as the year progresses.
