Elementary Music Instruction
The Caldwell-West Caldwell School District offers a variety of music lessons and performance opportunities for even our newest and youngest players.
Children learn to talk by experimenting and listening; they can learn to make music by experimenting and listening--unless we stop them! Place children in surroundings that are full of "invitations to learn," provide them with encouraging and sympathetic attitudes from adults, as well as knowledge, and amazing things can happen--especially to the sensory perceptions that are central to the arts...do we have the courage to embark with them on what are frequently unknown seas? --Emma D. Sheehy
All the sounds on the earth are like music. --Oscar Hammerstein
The man that hath no music in himself Nor is not move'dwith concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons , strategems, and spoils; The motions of his spirit are dull as night, And his affections dark as Erebus: Let no such man be trusted. --William Shakespeare
