• The eighth grade general music curriculum covers the Romantic and 20th century periods in European music. We will also touch on jazz, blues, and early rock music. The students will have several listening tests. There will be a few power point presentations and a paper during the course of the school year. Reading and writing music will also be emphasized. The students will use those acquired skills to compose a short percussion piece and perform it in class.
