Welcome to Elementary Music
Classroom music for students in Kindergarten, First, Second,
Fourth, and Fifth Grade
+ Fourth Grade Chorus
My classroom is built upon a National Standard structure.
What are the National Standards?
The National Standards are a group of guidelines and expectations for students in music class. I choose to use the National Standards as the New York State Standards are derived from the National Standards. The current National Standards and State Standards are in flux, but this list should give parents at home a solid idea of what is expected of our music students.
