Grade 2

In Grade 2 we do lessons using a mixture of the Orff approach and Kodaly method. This means we use classroom instruments (like the xylophones and other percussion instruments) to learn about different music elements like rhythm, melody, form, and more. We learn solfege syllables and handsigns as a prelude to music literacy. We learn primarily folk songs from different cultures as this is an instrumental part of both Orff and Kodaly.
