Vocal Music

Welcome to Vocal Music at Diamond Path!

Music is an essential part of the curriculum at Diamond Path. Classroom music is offered on a six-day cycle for 25 minutes, twice during the cycle, to all students in Grades K-5. The curriculum incorporates various teaching styles and focuses on the National Standards for Music Education.

  • Singing, alone and with others.
  • Performing on instruments, alone and with others.
  • Improvising melodies, variations, and accompaniments.
  • Composing and arranging music.
  • Reading and notating music.
  • Listening to, analyzing, and describing music.
  • Evaluating music and music performances.
  • Understanding relationships between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts.
