The students at Drayton Mills Elementary are learning all about music through singing, playing instruments, listening, moving, and creating. Our learning is focused by the South Carolina music standards of singing, playing instruments, composing, improvisation, reading music, listening and analyzing, evaluating, cross curriculum studies, and how music relates to history and culture.
Performance opportunities include the Dalmatian Chorus, made up of 4th and 5th grade students, which meets before school throughout the year. Students in the fifth grade also have the opportunity to learn instrumental music in either orchestra or band as part of their in-school music instruction.
All students in 1st-5th grades attend music class twice a week and 5K attends music once a week. 5K-2nd grade classes meet for 30 minutes while 3rd-5th grade classes meet for 40 minutes.
