Northwest General Music Class
All students of Northwest Elementary in Grades K-5 receive 40-45 minutes of music instruction once weekly. In general music students become well-rounded beginning musicians. All instruction is based on the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Music as well as Pinellas County School’s K-5 Essential Learnings.
Upon entering music class you may find students engaged in singing, dancing, movement, listening, reading, journaling, playing xylophones and small percussion, and many other activities. 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 fourth and fifth grade are given the opportunity to join extracurricular music ensembles here at Northwest.
