Music plays an important part in the lives of the students at Trenton Catholic Academy. They learn the standards for Music Education and use their talents to praise God at our many Prayer Services and Liturgies throughout the year. They are given the opportunity to sing, move, use instruments, develop listening skills, learn theory, history, and compose and create with the use of Garage Band and other computer websites. Students are expected to come prepared, participate, complete their work, show respect, and to always try their best!
Students in Grades 2 to 8 should have a folder, pencil and paper for Music Class. Handouts should be kept in their folders for reference at all classes.Students in Grade 3 are learning how to play the recorder and should have it for every music class.
Grades in music class are based on:
1. Class Participation - singing, playing instruments, group activities,
answering a question, and volunteering to read.
2.Classwork - completing handouts, whiteboards, use of computers.
3.Assessments - quiz or test.
