The elementary music program serves students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Through singing, listening, moving, creating, playing and reading music, students develop and refine their skills in the music concepts of duration, pitch, tone color, expression, design and cultural context. These concepts connect directly with the Fine Arts Standards for the State of Illinois. Each class has two 30-minute music lessons a week. The music text currently being used in all grades is Spotlight on Music. D54 schools also use instructional resources from Quaver Music. Student account information is available through your child’s general music teacher. Efforts are always made to integrate music instruction with specific themes being studied in other curricular areas and multicultural music is presented in all classes throughout the year.
