Music

Woodlands offers children in K4 (Children's Place) through Gr. 8 a rich and varied music curriculum. A variety of approaches are used to help students develop expressive, thoughtful and active involvement in music. Among them are the Silver Burdett music series and both the Orff and Kodaly curricula. Woodlands is a participant in the Milwaukee Symphony Arts in Community Education program. Students at Woodlands work directly with musicians, vocalists, composers, conductors, dancers, and professional groups including the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Skylight Opera Company, and others. They experience music in performance settings as well as in the classroom. The Woodlands music curriculum integrates singing, movement, instrument playing, composition, and analysis of musical styles across cultures and through time to build an appreciation and an understanding of music for the joy of music!
