Costa Performing Arts
General Music - Orff Method of Instruction
Costa primary grades PreK-4th grade sing, play, and dance in their music classes - the Orff certified music teacher, Mrs. Marasa stresses PERFORMANCE-BASED LEARNING in all general music classes.
Junior High students enjoy challenging, hands-on drumming and music composition (use of the Sibelius Program) in Music Exploration Class!
JH students compose their own music using the Sibelius program and perform it for a live audience!
