Our music classes in grades K-4 teach music appreciation, unison singing, rhythm studies, and introductory music theory, among other things. These classes are taught by the individual classroom teachers.
Music classes in 5th-8th grades are taught by our kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Destinee Fiecko. These classes meet in our church Music Room, and draw on and expand upon the music basics learned in the earlier grades.
