Choir is a class that meets every day at KMS! The focus is to learn more about music through choral singing. Harmony is a classroom goal each and every day. Students also learn how to improve vocal technique, stage presence, sight reading skills and performance skills. Harmony is achieved by placing students in sections of sopranos, altos, tenors/baritones. Students are placed in the vocal section where he/she will be most successful. A wide variety of music is used throughout the year. Students in choir perform 2-3 times a year with the 8th grade having an additional performance at Harrison High school with the high school choirs. If you love to sing and you enjoy performing, choose choir to be in your KMS schedule.
General Music is a class that meets every day at KMS! Students enrolled in General Music class study music outside of a performing group situation. Students still learn the basics of reading, writing, and appreciating music. However, students learn through music history and music theory instruction. Note taking, activities, test and projects are a part of this course. Students learn about music through a general classroom approach rather than a performance oriented approach.
