Music Mission and Goal

  • The mission of the Shady Hill Music program is to provide a quality and comprehensive music education to all students in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. This music education includes singing, playing instruments, moving to music, creating music, performing music, music appreciation, music history, music reading and notating, and much more.  Above all, the overall goal for Shady Hill students is to not only become better musicians and better performing artists, but better human beings. Your elementary student will learn to create and appreciate music in ways that will last a lifetime.

    Day Four 4/6/20: Make believe that every time you stepped outside you had to sing a song. If you had a "walking out of the house" song that you started to sing each time you left your house, what would it be? Why is that YOUR "going out" song? What would your song say?

    Day Three 4/3/20: People all across the world have been turning to music to help them through this time. Italians have been singing and playing on their balconies, Americans just put on a beautiful tribute concert called the "iHeart Concert for America" to raise money for coronavirus relief, and so many more have used music to help them through each day at home (maybe even you???). 

    What ways have you (or could you) use music to help you? What music do YOU turn to in times like these?

    Day Two 4/2/20: Did you know that you should be washing your hands for at least 20 seconds (the length of singing the song "Happy Birthday" twice!) to kill germs? Anyone also tired of singing "Happy Birthday"?!?!

    Come up with another song that YOU think we should sing for 20 seconds every time we wash our hands and teach your family members your new "hand washing song!"
