The goal of the Third Grade music curriculum is to delve further into the formal identification of music concepts, sharpen students’ physiological abilities in movement and performance, and hone in on experiential musical experiences such as listening, free movement, and emotional expression. Third graders get 45 minutes in music class, which provides them more time to go deeper into the given musical activities. This is a great year for musical exploration, for following curiosities, and for full artistic expression. The LS Choir is a wonderful supplement to this sentiment.
