Curriculum Corner with Miss German

Curriculum Corner

From Junior Kindergarten through 8th grade, music classes at Immanuel develop each student’s ability to sing, read, and play music primarily through the musically rich offerings of Lutheran hymnody and choral literature. Students will have both soloistic and ensemble opportunities to discover their God-given musical gifts, participating accordingly in a number of the traditional school and church functions throughout the academic year. In both smaller class settings and various combined grade levels, students will become more aware of their own contribution to and responsibility for the Church’s song, recognizing the truth, beauty, and goodness theologically inherent within the songs of the Lutheran faith and embracing this responsibility as an opportunity for love and service toward their neighbor.

Good habits outside of school would include going to church regularly, singing the Hymn of the Week at home together, actively listening to classical music on the radio, encouraging private instrumental lessons, going to choral concerts, and the like. Music truly exists as a gift from God for the soul, one to be faithfully cultivated and shared with one another. When learned well and honored with the integrity of a noble art, good music proves time and time again incredibly meaningful for its hearers and doers alike. Students and their parents ought to embrace this kind of music culture and always seek to develop it as they are able in both excellence and joy!
