Lower School - Vocal Music - McDonogh School

Lower School

In the Lower School, students are introduced to vocal music by catering to their intuitions and instinctive reactions to the sounds in their environment. Teachers use a wide range of tools to help students tap into their expressive capability and ingrained joy for communicating through sound and song. Students are given opportunities to sing in both informal and formal settings throughout the year, with a strong focus on building confidence and passion through singing. The Lower School vocal music curriculum also includes many opportunities for the more serious singer to flourish through participation in the Lower School Choir in grades three and four.
