Music

    ​​In elementary music, students focus on singing, playing instruments, improvising, composing, reading and notating music, as well as analyzing, evaluating and integrating music with other academic disciplines. 

    ​This skill-based approach​ spirals learning through each grade level and continues through more advanced musical studies.


    ​Music education is integral to learning and has a positive impact on overall student achievement and engagement in school. Research in support of the important role music plays in a child’s education is both abundant and clear. ​Our music teachers say that the best part of music at LES is that "performing and learning about the elements of music is fun! Children are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively in music class and will hopefully become life long music lovers." ​​​​
