Welcome to Music at
In music class, we sing and dance, play instruments and games,
listen and read, and compose and create music of all types!
Music is a vital ingredient to a child’s education.
It is the ultimate union of aural, visual,
and kinesthetic learning, and it is universally suited
to fit every child’s individual need.
Music builds a foundation for math, reading,
and language skills; develops an appreciation for the fine arts;
explores foreign countries and cultures; encourages imagination and creativity;
and enhances the pure enjoyment of school.
All students of Arcola Elementary are musicians,
and therefore every student participates in music class weekly.
Students in 1st through 5th grades have music for one half hour, twice a week.
Full day Kindergarten has a half hour of music once each week,
and Preschool has music for 15 minutes each week as well.
In addition, students in 4th and 5th grade can participate in the
"Rock-n-ROAR" in music:
