Elementary Music K-4

Belle Janssen

Course Description



The mission of the elementary music education is to engage the student in active learning while exploring movement and sound through excellent folk and composed materials.


In the Goliad County School District, elementary music is taught by specialists. The goals, concepts, and skills in the curriculum are aligned with the TEKS for Music. The curriculum is Quaver.

Children in Kindergarten through Grade Five experience a variety of learning activities in moving, speaking, singing, listening, playing, reading, creating/improvising, and evaluating. This is an active, music-making curriculum that enables all children to experience success in creating and performing music in all strands of the curriculum:

  • Rhythm - beat and rhythmic patterns
  • Melody - singing songs and reading melodies
  • Harmony - playing instruments and performing more than one part at a time
  • Form - studying phrases and the parts of music
  • Expressive Qualities - creating movement, studying instrument families, and listening to various styles of music
