The music program at Grace is designed to build on a child’s natural love of singing. Beginning in the Threes, each class has Music twice a week. The curriculum includes both group and solo singing, as well as age-appropriate movement activities. The Kindergarten also learns about the instruments of the orchestra; a unit which is supplemented by several guest musicians who demonstrate their instruments in a child-friendly way.
Concert etiquette instruction begins in the Threes when the children learn about the different behavioral expectations for performers and audience members. Opportunities to put this information to practical use occur during the December and May performances on the stage. These performances also give parents a chance to hear many of the songs that their children have worked on throughout the year.
