Music

Overview

Music is a vital part of the curriculum at Cedar Park and contributes to the lifelong development of the whole person (intellectual, physical and social emotional). An important form of communication music reflects and affects society, culture and history.

Students experience singing, playing instruments, moving, and creating music. The study of music includes the study of the people, places, and cultures involved in its creation and performance.  It is important for students in every school setting to study a wide variety of musical styles, cultures, and genres experiencing music through mirrors (a reflection of themselves) and doorways (an opportunity to develop understanding about the wider world).

The curriculum includes many different teaching styles including Kodály and Orff Schulwerk, while meeting the National Standards for Music Education:

  • Singing, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music.
  • Performing on instruments, alone and with others, a varied repertoire of music.
  • Improvising melodies, variations, and accompaniments.
  • Composing and arranging music within specified guidelines.
  • Reading and notating music.
  • Listening to, analyzing, and describing music
  • Evaluating music and music performances.
  • Understanding relationships between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts.
  • Understanding music in relation to history and culture.
