Music Program

Hacienda’s Music Program is known as a “pull out” program. All students, K through 5th grade get to enjoy coming to music class every week.

Grades K-5: 50 minutes per week

Students are privileged to have a music classroom with over 100 instruments from all over the world! What makes Hacienda’s music program so unique? It is 100% supported by fundraising from H.I.P.S., Hacienda Involved Parents and Staff.

The music program at Hacienda is based on the philosophy that music, as well as the other arts, touches a special part of student’s development. Through various music activities, they are able to express their own creativity and to also experience satisfaction, accomplishment, self-esteem and most of all, joy. The following activities are important parts of the music curriculum:

  • Learning to use our singing voices expressively with proper pitch. *Learning about orchestral and world instruments.
  • Moving to music and rhythm.
  • Learning to keep a steady beat.
  • Listening to, learning about, and participating in other activities relating to “notable composers”.
  • Playing rhythm and melodic instruments.
  • Improvising and creating their own movement and music.
  • Learning songs from various countries and cultures.
  • Growing in knowledge of music notation and exposure to music terminology.
  • Experiencing integration of academic subjects throughout the music curriculum such as Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science.
  • Performing in front of an audience.

Since we are primarily a vocal music program, singing is what we do best here at Hacienda.  Singing comes easily for most children.  Give them a chance to sing and they usually will take to it with enthusiasm.  Hopefully, the enjoyment of this most important instrument will last throughout their lives.  In addition to singing, students have opportunities to learn to play rhythm instruments, hand bells, recorders, and many other instruments found in Hacienda’s music room.
