Overview of Fifth Grade Music


Fifth grade students have the choice between general music or instrumental music. Students may choose to play a band or orchestra instrument, or may continue their studies in general music.

In general music, we spend the majority of our time applying our musical knowledge and expressing ourselves creatively through music. Some of our composition projects may include: Orff compositions, Songwriting, 12-Bar Blues, variations on folk songs, Super Duper Music Looper arrangements, and Drum Ensembles.
