Welcome to Music at Field School

Curriculum

The Music Curriculum is based on the Massachusetts Standards for Arts Education.  Concepts include singing, playing instruments, improvisation and composition, critical response, connections to history and culture.  Instructional approaches vary with grade level and utilize the philosophies and methodologies of Zoltan Kodaly, Carl Orff, and John Feierabend.  The music department has adopted the Conversational Solfege system to teach students to read and sight sing music in standard notation.
 Elemental music is never just music. It’s bound up with movement, dance and speech, and so it is a form of music in which one must participate, in which one is involved not as a listener but as a co-performer.” Carl Orff
