     First Steps in Music Curriculum 

    At FMES students from Pre-k through 2nd grade will be discovering and exploring music through this excellent curriculum by John M. Ferierabend. Please click on the link above to learn more about this wonderful way to explore music!


    The First Steps in Music curriculum is designed to prepare children to become musical in three ways:

    1. Tuneful – to have tunes in their heads and learn to coordinate their voices to sing those tunes.
    2. Beatful – to feel the pulse of music and how that pulse is grouped in either 2s or 3s.
    3. Artful – to be moved by music in the many ways music can elicit a feelingful response.
