Our Parent Club funds the music program at Brook Knoll. Miss Coleen is our music teacher and she has been teaching for nearly 25 years. She is trained and Level II certified in the Orff Schulwerk method.
Students receive music instruction once a week for 20 weeks of the school year. Miss Coleen uses fun and play in her teaching by including singing, chanting, movement and instruments while emphasizing the fundamentals of music performance theory and vocabulary. The students learn to hear and repeat a steady beat and to sing aloud, but most importantly, they learn the balance and joy of music! Studies show that music awareness enhances a students ability to study and learn as well as inspire their creativity, expression, and imagination.
Every Spring students participate in the annual Brook Knoll Spring Sing performance and showcase the songs they have learned throughout the year. We are so grateful to our generous parent community for funding this program every year.
