All students at New City School receive music instruction through a community partnership with MacPhail Center for Music. The MacPhail teachers are Sarah Hruska Olson and Andrew Myers. Ms. Sarah teaches students in Kindergarten-third grade, Mr. Andy teaches 4-8th grade.
Our innovative music curriculum emphasizes creativity along with sequenced musical skill building and hands-on learning in the Responsive Classroom tradition. Activities in music class include singing, movement, instrumental instruction, ear training and notation skills, working with musical technology, and composition. Starting in third grade, students learn to play the soprano recorder. Middle school students receive brass, wind or percussion instruction and create their own online compositions.
