Montano 2015-2016

Students at Knob Hill Elementary receive 40 minutes of performing arts (including music, drama, dance) each week with a full-time, credentialed music teacher thanks to SMUSD's commitment to performing arts education! Lessons include world music, singing, playing Orff instruments, rhythm exercises, listening activities, games, dancing, drama, playing recorders, evaluating music, and performances.

Music curriculum at Knob Hill is primarily based on MusicPlay by Denise Gagne. MusicPlay is a play based music program and includes singing, games, Orff, dance, listening, and much more!

My lessons are planned using the National Core Arts Standards and the California Music Content Standards and encourage students to work together, listen thoughtfully, and play and create music without fear of failure.

Hawk High Flyer Flag Salutes!

Students at Knob Hill learn and perform a song as a whole school for each Hawk High Flyer day!  Come and listen to us sing.  It is great to hear them all singing together!

Mrs. Furr

I want to thank all the students, staff, teachers, parents, PTO, the school board, Dr. Carmen Garcia, Matt Armstrong, and the Elementary VAPA team for their continued support for music at Knob Hill Elementary School. Together we make beautiful music!
