kids playing instruments


All TK-3rd Grade Students at Northwood receive elementary music on Tuesdays with Mrs. Butler.  Using the philosophy of Education Through Music children are exposed to song, movement games, social skill building and problem solving while engaging in the building blocks of what it takes to become musically literate.  Focus on the building of the imagination, while developing an awareness of pitch, beat, rhythmic accuity, and form are just some of the goals of her work with the students. Students in the older grades often begin to learn to sing cannons, rounds and partner songs.

4th & 5th grade Music is every Monday! Please help your student Be Responsible by remembering their instrument each week! 

District music teachers see 4th and 5th graders at Northwood for 40 minutes a week. The goal is to make music fun while learning skills, vocabulary and being actively involved in music making. For more information and teacher bios please visit the NVUSD Elementary Music Website link below.
