Welcome to the Hillsboro Elementary Music Web Site!
Our musical activities in Loudoun County center around four general areas: singing, playing instruments, listening and moving. Since the voice is everyone's own personal instrument, a major emphasis is placed on the development of every child's singing voice. Students in grades 1st - 5th receive two thirty minute periods of music per week. Our Loudoun County Music Curriculum is aligned with the National Standards of Art Education.
Each music lesson and activity is carefully chosen to teach the Virginia

Singing a varied repertoire of music
Performing on instruments
Improvising melodies, variations, and accompaniments
Composing and arranging music within specific guidelines
Reading and notating music
Listening to, analyzing, and describing music
Evaluating music and music performances
Understanding relationships between music, the arts, and disciplines outside the arts
Understanding music in relation to history and culture
