Curriculum Overview

“Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.” – Martin Luther

The Assumption Catholic School, we believe that through the study of music:

  • Students should experience the power of sung prayer and the joy of expressing their faith through music.
  • Students should be given opportunities to create, perform and respond to music of various types in a variety of ways.
  • Students should be prepared for a lifetime of active, satisfying involvement with music in a variety of forms.
  • Students should have opportunities to read, interpret and perform a wide range of music literature, including music created by others and their own works.
  • Students should be able to respond with understanding to others’ musical works and others’ performance.
  • Students should be empowered to create, refine and notate their own original music.
