Brentwood Park Elementary School has a full-time music program for students in kindergarten to grade 7. Our diverse program provides students with the tools needed to develop their musical abilities while providing a platform to develop a life long love of performing music. Students at Brentwood Park Elementary also have opportunities to perform in various musical ensembles, including our Primary Choir for students in grades 2 & 3 and our Intermediate Choir for students in grades 4 – 7. In addition to singing, students have access to learning various musical instruments including xylophone, percussion, recorder, ukulele, and guitar.
Our music program at Brentwood Park borrows and expands upon the philosophies and practices of the education system of Reggio Emilia, Italy. The uniqueness of this program focuses on the role of the teacher, student, parent, and classroom environment (Our Atelier or “Musician’s Studio” and also the outdoors). As a result of all of these working together on various levels with the student, musical co-learning occurs. Our Reggio Inspired music program also provides a platform to allow inquiry and discover into music through various provocations and explorations. Because of this, students have a greater comprehension and passion for the art of creating, understanding, and performing music.
