Students in Lamplighter’s music program learn patterns, music literacy and history, and music theory, as well as how to express themselves through music.
The Orff Schulwerk Method is taught in all level music classes; this method encourages and supports music composition, music improvisation and movement. Students attend monthly sing-alongs, called hootenannies, in which one grade level is featured each month. Students perform at the All School Program in December and fourth graders perform a capstone project, the Senior Operas each May. Field trips that enhance the music program include visits to the Dallas Symphony and the Dallas Opera.
