Here at LCA, we offer music, choir, band, chimes, and a musical. Our overall goal is to instill in students a well-rounded appreciation of music as a gift from God and an avenue of praise to Him. Our curriculum goals are based on the National Standards for Music Education. These goals are put into practice through singing, moving, chanting, playing instruments, reading music, and listening on a weekly basis.
Music curriculum is adjusted to the appropriate grade level for each class. Beginning in preschool, students learn to explore the sounds and experiences of music. Each year the curriculum builds on this knowledge and experience. In third grade, students begin learning to play the recorder. Fourth-grade students learn all about instruments, bands, and orchestras in preparation for the option to start a band instrument. Guitars are introduced in fifth grade, and sixth grade finishes the year with the annual musical.
“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” ~ Johann Sebastian Bach
