WHAT IS TAUGHT IN MUSIC?
The music program at Thomas Heyward Academy serves all students. Through singing, listening, moving, creating, playing, and reading music, students develop and refine their skills in the music concepts of duration, pitch, tone color, expression, design and cultural context. These concepts connect with National Standards for Music Education. Efforts are always made to integrate music instruction with specific themes being studied in other curricular areas and multicultural music is presented in all classes throughout the year. Students in grades 4th through 6th are taught the recorder. There are performances that include K3 through 6th grade, 8th grade Percussion Ensemble, and High School Drama 1.
