Southwood Elementary School's Music Program Philosophy

Our Music Program is based on the following seven benchmarks as established by Orange County Public Schools.  Our students be provided the opportunity to experience the following:

  • SING
  • PLAY INSTRUMENTS
  • READ and NOTATE MUSIC
  • LISTEN, ANALYZE, DESCRIBE and EVALUATE MUSIC
  • UNDERSTAND and RELATE MUSIC TO CULTURE and HISTORY
  • UNDERSTAND and RELATE MUSIC TO OTHER STUDIES and LIFE EXPERIENCE

Southwood Elementary's Music students will be provided hands-on playing experiences using Orff instruments, participate in expressive movement and space exploration activities, play recorders, participate in choral singing and have performance opportunities for the school and community.

Southwood Elementary believes in the development of the "whole child". We know that Music is a necessity, not an option.

Our students flourish as a result of their meaningful music experiences at our school.


Sincerely,

Ms. Manitta
Music Teacher
Southwood Elementary School
