Sing. Dance. Play.
In music, all children experience the pleasure of singing, moving, dancing, and playing instruments. They begin playing percussion instruments in the early years, learn to play Orff xylophones in second grade, recorders in third grade, and handbells and boomwhackers in fourth grade. The children all perform in assemblies and special occasion programs. Third Grade students also learn violin. As with Art, Music classes are tied to Lower School Social Studies and/or History units, providing for a cross-curricular experience. The Kent School Chorus is an extracurricular program open to third through eighth grade students.
