The goal of music education in the Lower School is the creation of comfort and joy in music for the students, as well as a love for and appreciation of all aspects of musical creation—singing, composing, and making music. In addition to encouraging this love of music—both from within our own rich and varied culture, and from around the world—students are instructed in music theory and technique. Notes, their values, and the structure of music are taught through singing, games, and playing instruments. As part of their music education, Lower School students also receive weekly instruction in Maharishi Gandharva VedaSM music. Classes are offered either in tabla, the classical Indian drum, or flute, depending on the age of the student.
