Music: Culturally Responsive & Cross-Curricular


Students are introduced to music in an accessible way, using hand and body gestures (Dalcroze Eurythmics) with rhythm games and movement exercises. Our program then builds on a strong foundation of the basics like Solfege (do, re, mi), rhythm syllables, and a child-development approach.

We help students pursue their natural talents and passion for reading, writing, and composing music as well as playing with an ensemble. 

Every student will gain experience with ukuleles, guitars, Djembe drums, keboards, and DAW's (Digital Audio Workspaces) for editing, mixing and composing music.

Music at RDS embodies improv, composing, theatre and technology.
