Music

Students love music classes at Mary, Queen of Peace, and for good reason!  Students in grades PK through third explore musical concepts such as rhythm and pitch through many singing and movement activities.  Materials such as Lummi sticks and Orff instruments provide endless opportunities to learn these concepts and develop listening, singing and rhythmic skills. To enhance the learning experience, boom whackers and desk bells are used.  As a result, the students learn notation, tempo, and dynamics with much enthusiasm.  The enjoyment of making music is one of the most important goals achieved through years of music classes at our school.
