• I see every class once every 6 days for 40 minutes. This equates to only 30 music classes throughout the entire school year...and we have SO much to do! 
    Throughout the year we will put on plays, assemblies, and shows for the parents, school and the Plainville community.
    Music is a class that deals with musical concept development, music reading, listening, movement and performance skills.  These various skills are taught through many different musical approaches such as singing, playing, dancing, listening, creating and performing.  Each grade level has its own personal challenges and expectations.
