General Music Class Overview
8th Grade:

Music of China:

Students will learn the history of Chinese culture and the instruments associated with its folk traditions. Students will create a Chinese opera mask, character story, and a melody to accompany it.


Students will examine what really makes music in a non-traditional way. Students in this unit will bring in their own "instruments" in the form of things like kitchen utensils, school supplies, etc. to create a staged performance of a STOMP routine.
