Welcome to Music!
At Hilltop School, music is an active art. From Kindergarten through 4th grade we progress sequentially to teach children musical knowledge and concepts. We do a variety of activities in every grade level throughout the school year including singing, listening, playing instruments, and movement.
In fourth grade instrumental lessons, students learn correct playing posture, embouchure (woodwind and brass instruments), how to care for the instruments, and how to play individual pitches and simple songs with proper tone.
