Music is awesomely fun, but also plays an important role in a well-rounded education! My lessons closely follow the Texas Essential Knowledge Standards, or TEKS. Every public school teacher is required to teach their students based on a set of standards, to make learning consistent across the state. Here are the goals that your child will be achieving this year.
