Greenhills offers a fabulous program with strong participation from all students. Music lessons cover a range of concepts including learning about pitch, tempo, timbre, dynamics, form, rhythm and notation. The students sing, dance and play a variety of tuned and non-tuned percussion instruments in their music lessons. They explore music from different genres and cultures and create their own music whether in the form of soundscapes or original compositions. Music lessons are based on Orff and Kodaly teaching methods.
