The National Core Arts Standards for Music Education

  1. Creating

  • Conceiving and developing new artistic ideas and work.

  1. Performing, Presenting, Producing

  • Realizing artistic ideas and work through interpretation and presentation.

  1. Responding

  • Interacting with and reflecting on artistic work and performances to develop understanding.

  1. Connecting

  • Relating artistic ideas and work with personal meaning and contextual knowledge.

The National Coalition for Core Arts Standards suggests that the arts operate in a “hands-on” and “minds-on” capacity. We strive to create a learning environment where students are encouraged to engage in the creative practices of imagining, investigating, constructing and reflecting.
