General Music provides students a foundation of musical knowledge from which all areas of music can be studied.  General Music introduces and explores diverse cultures and styles of music while developing musical skills of reading/writing, singing, playing, performing, moving, composing/improvising, and listening.  The development of musical skills combined with an understanding of the musical concepts of rhythm, melody, harmony, form, and expressive elements contribute to a lifelong understanding and aesthetic valuing of music.
