    Welcome to Norton Music

    Music Students K-5 meet for music once a week for 45 minutes

    We will Sing, Say, Dance and Play while studying the foundations of music appropriate to their grade level.

    These foundations for music are guided by the state curriculum designed for each grade.

    6th Grade students participate in one of three performing groups:  Choir, Band or Orchestra.

    These performing groups meet twice a week for 45 minutes.  I direct the choir, while the middle school teachers come to Norton to teach their specific classes.

    Students will be receiving two grades in music – one for content mastery and one for conduct.  The music grades are given four times a year at the end of each nine week marking period.
