Music teachers in CREC schools believe that music education is essential to the development of the whole child.   While learning about music in general music classes and/or practicing their instrument in a performance-based class, students are also developing critical thinking skills, self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, creativity, and self-motivation necessary for success.

Please note:  At CREC, we follow the National Core Art Standards in the way that our music curriculum is written.  We utilize the four pillars:  Creating; Performing/Presenting/Producing; Responding; and Connecting.

How to Support Your Music Student at Home: 

You can best support your child’s love of music by asking questions about what they are learning in school, listening to a variety of music together with your child, creating a “music space” at home where your child can practice their instrument, encouraging your child to give “at home concerts” for family and friends.
