The primary goal of the vocal music program is to instill a life long appreciation and love of music. We start with the belief that all children are born with an intrinsic musicality and it is our job to nurture and develop this musicality in every child.
The Elmsford Elementary music program is holistic in nature and strives to produce young musicians who are creative and innovative. The program is also experiential and we believe that children learn by doing. The students in our program sing, dance and play pitched and non-pitched instruments. The musical teachings are developmental from kindergarten to the sixth grade. Students are exposed to and experience all types of music from many different genres and cultures.When they leave us at the end of sixth grade it is our hope that music will continue to be a large part of their artistic life.
