Other Classroom Information: The Kodaly philosophy is the foundation for teaching music at Green Springs. With very limited time to see every class, our main goals are that every student will leave Green Springs with: 1. An understanding of the STEADY BEAT and its' relevance to music. 2. An understanding of RHYTHM and how those sounds and rests are dissected into the beats. 3. The ability to hear and differentiate the PITCHES of the pentatonic scale. 4. An appreciation and enjoyment of the art of MUSIC!
