Starting in 2018-19, all K-6 and K-8 schools in Mapleton will have the opportunity to offer general music to their students.
The Orff approach has historically been a common approach used to teach general music to K-5th grade students in Mapleton, and throughout the country. The Orff approach is a way of teaching students about music that engages their mind and body through a mixture of singing, chanting, movement, drama and playing of percussion instruments. Improvisation, composition and a child's natural sense of play are encouraged.
General music teachers in our schools are supported by our Performing Arts Department through mentoring, collaboration and professional development opportunities.
Mapleton students in grades 5-12 are invited to participate in the District band, orchestra or choir. As a member of the Mapleton's Performing Arts team, you have the opportunity to participate in exciting performances and competitions all year.
