Music at St. Edward School is based on the philosophy of Helen Kemp, a famous director of sacred children's choirs: "Body, mind, spirit, voice - It takes the whole person to sing and rejoice." We approach the music for each weekly children's mass from this perspective. We use liturgical motions, sign language, barred and percussion instruments, scarves and other props to enhance the learning and performing of the music. Music of other cultures and languages is also included. We study composers and of course, the basics of reading music. It's hard to cram so much exciting material into two short periods a week, but we have fun trying!!
