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.
