Welcome to Lake Garda Music!

Regional School District #10 provides a safe and respectful learning environment to promote academic excellence and personal growth. We work collectively to cultivate the skills and knowledge of our students to create inquisitive leaders, and responsible citizens.

First Steps in Music for Preschool and Beyond* is Feierabend’s text for Pre-K through the beginning of 1st grade. Its focus is developing singing and movement skills, and is rich in traditional folk music. The design encourages students to be “tuneful, beatful, and artful.”

Beginning in first grade and continuing through fourth grade, students begin Conversational Solfege*, Feierabend’s curriculum for teaching music literacy. This method uses a twelve-step process developing students’ aural skills, the way language is taught, before musical symbols are introduced. The curriculum incorporates rhymes, songs, games, and movement activities.


*This curriculum utilizes an approach to music learning created by Dr. John Feierabend, Prof. of Music and Dir. of the Music Ed. Div., The Hartt School of the Univ. of Hartford.

Miss Morrison's Music of the Month
The Music of the Month for April comes from a 2nd Grader at Lake Garda!

"The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to put children first. UNICEF has helped save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization, by providing health care and immunizations, safe water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF USA supports UNICEF's work through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States."

In December of 2020, P!nk collaborated with the Ndlovu Youth Choir on this new version of A Million Dreams. Although they were thousands of miles apart due to the pandemic, they were connected by UNICEF’s lifesaving mission of putting children first.
