The Diocesan music curriculum encourages students of all ages to explore many different areas of music. Here are some of the topics that I will be teaching to each grade this year:

  • Performance techniques and proper behavior
  • Developing personal connection to, and creation of, music
  • Music theory and the foundations of Western music
  • Familiarity with the instruments and history of the orchestra
  • Aural analysis of different genres of music
  • Investigation of other music cultures around the world
  • Cross-curricular connections between music and other subjects
  • Understanding the role of music in society and in the liturgy
