Philosophy

The City School District of Albany's music program recognizes music and the arts as an important part of a well-rounded education. It is our belief that a balanced music program consists of varied musical experiences such as singing, playing instruments, listening, reading music and expressive movement. Please visit our Music Department website for more information.

 

Further, an effective elementary music program not only contributes to the education and personal enrichment of the whole child, but also adds to the intellectual, multicultural and social environment of the entire school. Therefore, we believe that music is an aesthetic and global experience that every child has a right to learn and enjoy.

 

Purpose
The purpose of the music program is to allow every child the opportunity to develop music skills, life skills and an appreciation for music and the arts.

 

Music students will:

 

Create, perform and participate

Know and use music materials and resources

Respond to and analyze works of music

Understand the cultural dimensions and contributions of music  

 

Music programs
The City School District of Albany's elective music program consists of general music, instrumental band and instrumental strings. See the Quick Links bar on the right to learn more.
