Each year students will experience quaver lessons strategically picked for their grade level.
3rd Grade – in order to be prepared for big decisions in 4th grade, our 3rd graders spend their time with Quaver learning all about the musical instrument families. This unit of quaver features:
- The Woodwind Family
- The Brass Family
- The Percussion Family
- Guitars & Fretted instruments
- The Keyboard Family
By studying these topics, our students will be better prepared to decide whether they’d like to join band, choir, both, or neither once they reach 4th grade!
5th Grade – for our final year in Quaver, our 5th grader wrap-up their experience with lessons in musical time periods and musical styles. These units include:
- The Baroque Period
- The Classical Period
- The Romantic Period
- The Impressionist Period
Upon reaching middle school, our students will have been exposed to a wide array of musical styles and genres.
1st, 2nd, and 4th Grades – Over these three grades, our students will experience the widely encompassing first unit of Quaver including:
- The Grand Staff
- The Musical Alphabet
- Lines & Spaces
- Notes & Rests
- Writing Rhythms
- Writing a Song
- Chords & Harmony
Such a wide array of musical subject takes time over multiple grade levels to cover.
