MusicThe goals of the music program at Shepherd are to develop a love and joy of music, to foster an understanding of important musical techniques, terms, and to develop musical excellence in every student. Appreciation of music is key and most important in our music room. Exposure to a wide variety of cultures, musical styles, music literacy, and instruments helps our young ones explore their own musical talents. All students find their rhythm by singing, moving, playing of percussion instruments and keyboards. Some grades will explore Orff instruments, and some will use recorders. Here at Shepherd the music program provides many opportunities for individual growth and encourages every student to nurture their instinctive love of music.
