High Plains Music Program
All students at High Plains take part in music classes. Lessons are based on the Colorado State Music Standards for kindergarten through fifth grades. Students learn about the basic elements of music and how to apply those elements. Students of all grade levels learn how to read and write music, perform as a group, sing, music history, music technology, and important musical composers. Each grade-level performs a musical program every year. The shows vary each year and teach different musical genres, styles and have an academic connection. Students also learn to play instruments. Younger students play percussion instruments (drums, xylophones, boomwhackers, etc.) while older students learn to play recorders and can-joes. This is an excellent way to incorporate all of our music standards in a very enjoyable manner.
