Ms. Astrid is a classically trained musician who brings years of experience teaching music to Courtyard. In addition to singing, students love learning to play various instruments such as bells, xylophones, Boomwhackers, and percussion instruments. Students are also taught how to read notes and play music while reading.
In the music program, students gain a basic understanding of music theory, progressing each year as they are developmentally ready. Students are able to listen to and learn about music throughout the ages up to our modern times and become familiar with composers by learning about their lives and songs.
Students audition for parts, take great pride in helping to develop choreography, and are thrilled to show off all of their hard work when performing on stage for their families during the annual Spring and Winter Performances.
