We are fortunate in Mill Valley to have an excellent music program that begins in kindergarten and continues through eighth grade. Kiddo! funds the District's music program and without your donations to Kiddo! our kids would miss out on the incredible world of music.
The music program provides students the opportunity to listen to and perform, read and describe, create and appreciate, a multicultural variety of songs, melodies and rhythms. Elementary students learn about the five elements of music - pitch, rhythm, expression, form and texture - with new layers of musical understanding building each year as students progress from one grade to the next. You will be able to see your child perform throughout the year at various performances.
Mrs. Lori Adessa is the music teacher for kindergartners, first and second graders, and Ms. Anna Stearns is the music teacher for third, fourth and fifth graders.
