As music educators we feel that music is an integral part of a well-rounded education, appealing to the creative side of a student. The Medford Township Public School’s Music Program allows each student to find their outlet. Music has the power to relate to everyone in a way that nothing else can. It is the opportunity for students to dance, sing, play instruments and find their path whether it is through creating, moving, listening or appreciating. It is our duty as educators to teach students to relate to concepts with an open mind, through music.
In addition to general music, fourth and fifth graders also get to participate in the chorus, which meets during the school day and culminates in a concert. Fifth grade students also have the option to learn to play a band instrument. We challenge each student to explore the world as they see it, through music. Our music program offers a broad range of performance experiences for our children, their families and the community.
