At The Oakville School for the Arts we view music as “a way of knowing”. According to Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner, music intelligence is equal in importance to logical – mathematical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, spatial intelligence, bodily – kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence. Making music is as much a basic life skill as walking or talking! Like Hungarian music educator and philosopher, Zoltan Kodaly, we believe it is a birthright for all people to be able to sing in tune, march to a beat and be able to experience the expressive capabilities inherent to music. Students will sensorially explore music through instrumental activities, listening and singing activities as well as through creative musical movement.
