The Lower School's approach to music education is similar to teaching students a world language that is unfamiliar to them. Rather than teaching about music, students learn to become musical and speak the language of music. Leading to performance as an integration of skills learned, students are exposed to music in a variety of ways, including singing, playing musical instruments (woodwind, brass, strings, percussion, recorders, Orff, and other classroom instruments), performing, movement, reading notation, composing, improvising, music technology, and other concepts.
