GILLETTE SCHOOL MUSIC

The main goal of the Gillette 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 three expectations in the Music Room:

Be a good friend.

Be a good listener.

Follow directions the FIRST time they are given.
