Music Docent Program

  • Fremont’s Music Docent Program helps students understand and appreciate various styles of music as well as music history.
    During the year students receive four to six Music Docent sessions where they learn about instruments in an orchestra, composers, famous musicians, folk music, jazz, opera, symphonies and other great compositions. Each 45-minute lesson is geared for a specific grade level to increase the knowledge of music as the children advance in education.
    Future goals for the program include students learning the basics of music: rhythms and basic sight reading skills in addition to being able to try instruments brought into the classroom.
    Formal music training or teaching experience is NOT necessary to volunteer for the Music Docent Program. Each lesson is scripted and the corresponding materials, music and visuals are provided. The Music Docent Chairs hold an orientation at the beginning of the year. Some classrooms have one Music Docent who does all of the lessons; some have two or more parents who share the responsibility.
