MILLINGTON SCHOOL MUSIC

The main goal of the Millington School Music Program is for all students have a positive experience while exploring, and learning the fundamentals of music (beat, pitch, rhythm, dynamics, tempo, form, and tone color.) The students will do this through chanting, singing, playing classroom instruments, dancing, and performing various styles of music.

There are five expectations in the Music Room:

Make choices that help you and others learn.

Use instruments and classroom materials with care.

Speak, sing, and play instruments when it is your turn.

Immediately follow all directions.

Consider others and be kind.
