    A Parent’s Guide to Music at

    Sycolin Creek Elementary

     
    Students at Sycolin Creek have music for 30 minutes twice a week.  During that time, they sing, play instruments, dance and much more!  First and second grade students each have a musical program.  All students participate in the Veterans Day Program and the Holiday Sing-a-long.  Fourth and fifth grade students all play recorder and they are also eligible to join the Sycolin Creek Singers. 
     
     
    The comprehensive Music Program at Sycolin Creek will be based on the following six musical elements:

    Expressive Qualities 
     Dynamics, Tempo and Articulation

     
    Tone Color 
     Vocal and Instrumental


    Duration
     Beat/Meter and Rhythm


    Pitch
     
    Melody, Harmony and Tonality


    Design
     
    Texture and Form/Structure

     
    Cultural Context

    Style/Background

     

    These elements are taught during music lessons through singing, playing, moving and improvising.  Students learn to read and write musical notation.  Listening, describing and analyzing are also important skills.  All skills are taught in a planned, sequential order to maximize each child's success.
