We are proud to have a strong music program at Linden Meadows. We are
committed to providing creative musical experiences for every child. Through
the Orff process, our students enjoy singing, movement, instrumental playing,
and listening activities. Music is taught three times a school day cycle for a
total of ninety minutes per cycle by a music specialist.
All of our children play the barred instruments and non-pitched percussion
from kindergarten through grade 5. Recorder is introduced in grade 4 and
continues until grade 5. The recorder is an invaluable instrument that develops
musical literacy and ensemble skills.
In addition to regular class instruction by our Music Specialist there are
extracurricular opportunities offered throughout the year including choirs and various
ensembles, depending on the interests of our students from year to year. Many
of our students attend the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s Adventures in Music
program as audience members and performers. Our students host musical
presentations such as the Remembrance Day and Canada Day assembly, holiday
concerts to name a few. Our choirs also perform in festivals outside the
school. We are proud of our choirs that have received accolades and high marks
for their performances.
