In the Lower School, Lowcountry Preparatory School’s music students are introduced at age-appropriate intervals to the basic elements of music, such as rhythm, harmony, and melody. Students become familiar with various musicians, instruments, and artistic movements from across the ages. Each grade learns the fundamentals of reading and writing music. Music class also has an element of drama. Students are introduced to improvisational games and have the opportunity to audition and rehearse for roles in upcoming productions.
The children work hard each year to put on several concerts and plays. These shows are a mixture of solo and choir performances so that students learn to explore their own creativity with confidence and appreciate others’ talents through teamwork.
