Preschool Music Program

At Oakstone Academy, we understand the importance music brings to the preschool program.  Our teachers offer musical experiences daily through circle time activities that encourage singing, creative movement, and exploring simple musical instruments.  A degreed music professional works with each classroom bi-weekly to help students explore music in their world and engage them in creative movement.

Elementary Music Program

In kindergarten students are exposed to the early concepts of music as they begin to learn how to work together to make music through the use of simple instruments.

Students in the first through third grades continue to develop music concepts through a recorder program.  Students are taught to read music and understand related terminology while they learn to play with others.  To showcase their accomplishments, students participate in two performances each year.

Fourth and fifth grade students have the opportunity to elect to be in the school band.  The band instructor works with students and families to select an instrument appropriate for the young musician.  Students who elect to participate in band have two sessions of instruction per week during the school day.  These students participate in two performances each year, as well as occasional performances for the students during the school day.

Middle/High School Music Program

During their middle and high school years, students interested in music have many options to explore at Oakstone Academy. A sequential music experience provides students with the knowledge and skills to experience, create, and enjoy singing, reading, writing, playing, or listening to music.  Instruments and movement offer students hands-on and active experiences.  Some students may elect to participate in band or choir, while smaller classes may elect to take part in a guitar or keyboard lab.  Regardless of the type of music class enrolled in, classes are aimed to promote critical thinking and an appreciation and understanding of music.
