Music History Listening Records


The primary focus in eigth grade music is to enhance the curriculum through song and rhythm and compositions. Students learn to sing, how to play keyboard/piano and all the orchestral string instruments. We focus heavily on music history and music theory relating to 8th grade social studies curriculum as well as composition (digitally and hand written). Students who already have piano or strings experience will be evaluated and continue instruction at their current level. For students new to these instruments, we begin with basic playing technique and reading notes.  We encourage all our 8th grade students who take lessons and play other instruments to bring them to class later during the trimester. We will use their talents and their instruments to enhance our class. Vocally, we will be working on pieces that range from Opera to Broadway, from Classic Rock to Pop/Hip-Hop and more. We want our students to play and practice on their own, as well as play with other people, keep rhythm and lead with others following. We perform during the holiday season as well as doing a spring performance toward the end of the year with other possible performance opportunities throughout the year.
