Elementary music classes at Concordia follow the Orff Schulwerk approach, incorporating singing, movement, and instruments. Using imitation, experimentation, and personal expression, students in the Orff Schulwerk classroom learn music in a diverse and active environment that allows them to develop as confident, life-long musicians and creative problem solvers.
Orffestra - a co-curricular music ensemble that focuses on building musicianship and instrumental skills using class instruments including mallet and percussion instruments and handbells. We focus on making music as a group, developing our improvisation and music literacy skills and conclude with a short performance at the end of the Fall CCA session.
Phoenix Youth Choir (Gr. 2-4) - a co-curricular music ensemble for students in Grades 2-4. Students in this group develop their skills in singing through a variety of choral music, and present an evening performance at the conclusion of the CCA session.
