Music at Tillotson

 
 
 
Here at Tillotson, students receive great opportunities to develop their musical skills. Students have the chance to play a variety of instruments including drums, ukuleles, pianos, bells, and even the guitar. Additionally, students share how music affects them emotionally during an activity called "Face the Music." Kinesthetic learning (learning by movement) is also addressed in the music curriculum. Students work on learning how to read music by moving to lines and spaces on the music staff carpet. During this activity, the teacher or a fellow student says which line to go to. During class, students also learn about a variety of music topics including instrument families, music technology, and music history. Lastly, students also have the opportunity to sing in the Tillotson Choir which performs at Heritage Manor Senior Living.

Virtual Reality

Spotlight News

The Tillotson School Tiger Zone is a creative space that gives our students exposure to all types of technology.  Virtual Reality, 3D Printers, Cricut Machines, iPads, Surface Devices, and a Green Screen production set are just some of the technology tools our students have access to.  Many schools have labeled their spaces as STEM, STEAM, or Makerspace Labs.  The Tiger Zone is similar to all of the above as it constantly evolves with new technologies and experiences.  Here at Tillotson, our students will be prepared to use technology in the workplace and in their everyday lives.  The classroom teachers and Dr. Smith, the Instructional Technology Specialist, work together to design and integrate technology into all curriculum areas making learning engaging for students while giving students some real-world experiences.   Our students become familiar with many different operating system platforms, making them comfortable to work in Microsoft, Mac, and Google environments.  The CREATE club hosted in the Tiger Zone allows students to not only create new experiences and knowledge, but it also allows them to use the 3D Printers and Cricut Machines to create new products for themselves, classmates, and the classrooms here at Tillotson.
