Vocally and instrumentally, music enlightens young minds and helps fulfill them.
As an elective to the Village School’s regular Music program, we also offer students in fourth grade and older participation in a full instrumental band, with instruction in a wide range of band instruments: brass, woodwind and percussion. Playing in the band encourages teamwork and collective enterprise, while nurturing instrumental passion and skill. The school has arranged for rental of band instruments at a very minimal cost.
Chorus begins in third grade for those students who are interested. Chorus offers our students an opportunity to enhance their musical, creative and expressive qualities and to learn the basic skills of singing, developing song repertoire, broadening listening skills and experiencing the interrelated nature of music with other cultures and content areas.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
