Music is part of the curriculum for every K - 5 student in the Bismarck Public Schools. During music, students will engage in a wide variety of musical experiences including singing, moving, creating, and playing instruments such as recorder, xylophones, and drums. By developing an understanding of music, students grow to appreciate and participate in music throughout their life.

Students are taught music reading and writing skills, as well as, singing skills. Throughout elementary school, students review and add to musical knowledge in order to build musical skills.

Music progress reports are issued each trimester. Students are evaluated based on the music standards singing skills, reading and writing music, listening and analyzing music, and improvising and composing music, as well as, social skills. Music skills are evaluated frequently using written and performance assessments. Many of the assessments are informal performance oriented games demonstrating musical skills.

Musical performance is an off spring of the music curriculum. Each student will perform in one performance each year. All students are important to the performance. Please send a note to Mrs. Hall (Music Teacher) well in advance if your child if unable to attend the performance.
