MUSIC WITH SARA, HANNA, CHRIS, AND ERMA
Franklin parent and musician, Sara Quintenar, offers standards-based music instruction to all our classrooms and has contracted with Hanna Spahn to teach in German and Chris and Erma Burnett (also Franklin parents) to teach in Italian! During music class, children get a chance to move, create, explore their talents, and learn new songs in their target languages. Children take ownership in their learning. They choreograph dances, manipulate phrasing in songs and tempos to change the expression and sometimes write their own songs.
Each year our music program has grown and have encouraged many students to pursue music outside of school. Our program aims to engage children and ignite a passion and love of the arts.
