NTH Music

"The Life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction in the life of a nation, is very close to the center of a nation’s purpose and is a test of the quality of a nation’s civilization."  - John F. Kennedy

   Music instruction at Nathan T. Hall is a sequential and spiraling skill-building program covering basic elements of music such arhythm, melody, harmony, texture, form, tempo, dynamics, and tone  color.
   Starting in kindergarten children become more aware of the elements as they develop their pre-reading skills through listening,  singing,  echoing, marching, playing instruments, and creative movement.  As students  progress through the grades more complex skills are  introduced.
   Students also learn about the history, science, language, math, and social implications of music through various genres.
   All classes receive music instruction 2 times during the six-day cycle for 30 minutes.
