Vocal Music | Plymouth Christian Academy
PCA Elementary Vocal Music
Elementary Vocal Music at Plymouth Christian Academy uses a movement-based program that allows students to develop their sense of rhythm. Kodaly Training is used to improve their ability to hear, sing, read, write and listen to music with a knowledgeable ear. Upper elementary students continue their training of melody and rhythm and add to their tools the ability to play instruments and compose.
Students meet bi-weekly for 46 minutes. All students participate in music classes taught from a Biblical worldview. The 4th-6th grade students also have an opportunity to meet twice a week to participate in elementary choirs. These choirs sing at concerts and also go into the community for outreach.
In addition to musical field trips and enjoying special musical guests, Elementary Vocal Music students perform alongside our elementary orchestra in two concerts – Christmas and Spring, where they perform a combination musical presentation including choir, band, and strings.
