Music at MUSE
We approach music through immersive daily instruction beginning in pre-K that weaves rhythm, song, and simple melodies into the fabric of learning and daily life. Every MUSE artist develops baseline musicianship that builds into advanced levels of performance and music creation in succeeding years.
Music is integral to life at MUSE. We approach music as a living language through which students learn authentic self-expression and reflection, while also illuminating a path to exploring our common humanity.
The opportunity to listen, feel, and engage creatively with music sparks both the imagination and cognitive development, as nurturing musical intelligence generates positive effects across a broad spectrum of academic areas.
Careful lesson planning creates interconnections with academic subjects from humanities to math, language arts, and geography. All genres of music are explored in the MUSE curriculum, from symphonic works and opera, to African and diaspora drumming, musical theatre, pop, folk, rock, and jazz. Each type of music can teach valuable aural lessons and add variety and enjoyment to students' experience of music. Encouraging openness to all the world’s music, from folk and early music to modern, is an important goal at MUSE.
