General Music Class
All students of Northwest Elementary in Grades K-5 receive 45 minutes of music instruction once weekly. In general music, students become well-rounded beginning musicians. All instruction is based on the Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Music as well as Pinellas County School’s K-5 Key Learning Goals.
Upon entering music class you may find students engaged in singing, dancing, movement, listening, reading, journaling, playing instruments, using music technology, and much more!
The goal of general music is to prepare students to go on to middle school and be ready to take their musicianship to the next level in any music course they choose. To aid in this goal, students in upper grades are given the opportunity to join extracurricular music ensembles here at Northwest.
