WELCOME TO GENERAL MUSIC!
All students learn to be tuneful, beatful and artful!
Cambridge music teachers use both the Feierabend and Kodàly methods of music education when teaching. These methods develop the whole-music learner by teaching students to be tuneful (students can hear tunes in their heads and sing with expression), beatful (students can feel and keep a steady beat), and artful (students can move expressively and be moved by the emotions in music). It is a rote before note approach.
All K-5 students receive 35 minutes of general music instruction once a week. Classes include the following activities throughout the school year:
-movement activities (fine and gross motor)
-vocal exploration and development
-teacher-led, student-led and class-led songs and movements
-song and rhythm creation
-reading and writing rhythms and melodies
