Music instruction is part of the total instructional program for the students at Melrose Elementary. Music instruction is based on the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) and integrates the benchmarks taught in language arts and content areas. This collaborative approach ensures that instruction is delivered through multiple learning styles.

The five major components of music instruction are:

  • Music literacy
  • Technique
  • Expressive and stylistic characteristics
  • Musical structures
  • Personal and social music development and life long musical learning
