In Music classes, we spend a lot of time learning the songs for mass -- not just the melodies, but also what the lyrics mean. Our masses are wonderful and powerful because the children understand and own the music they sing. When not working on the music for mass, we run the gamut of musical tasks in various classes: we study music history, we play Orff instruments, we square dance, we do musical plays, we play music games, we sing some more ... the Music Room is rarely quiet and is never dull.
