As we at St. Timothy’s strive to educate the whole child, music is an important part of our curriculum. We teach fundamentals of music, including: singing, playing instruments, reading and notating music, and movement and dance. We also make cross-curriculum connections as we discuss music that we are studying.
Music allows many opportunities for formation in virtues such as patience, listening, self-control, and working together as a team. Music also gives our students the opportunity to connect with our cultural roots and those who have gone before us through learning patriotic and folk songs. Likewise, music enables our students to step into the richness of our Catholic faith tradition as we join our voices together in times of worship at Mass, Eucharistic adoration, and other times of prayer throughout the year.
Music has the ability to touch something within that words alone cannot; it opens the door for our students to be touched by beauty and to grow in their relationship with God.
