“If you can walk, you can dance.  If you can talk, you can sing.”  ~Zimbabwe proverb~


         All Cold Harbor Cougars attend music class once a week for 45 minutes. 

 Students will sing, dance and play classroom instruments.  They will improvise and compose their own music. 

We also learn about the music of other cultures and various composers,
including J. S. Bach, L. van Beethoven and Elvis Presley.


  • Recorders: Students will being their recorder study in 4th grade and continue in 5th, enhancing their music reading abilities.
  • Chorus: Students in 4th and 5th grade will have the opportunity to participate in Chorus.  We meet after school and put on several performances throughout the year.
  • All-County Chorus:  Students in 5th grade will have the opportunity to audition for the All-County Chorus, which performs annual at the Hanover County Festival of Arts and Sciences.  Students must be in Chorus to audition.
  • Orff Ensemble: Fifth grade students have the opportunity to perform in the Orff Ensemble.  This group performs at least two times throughout the year.  Focusing on rhythms and ensemble playing, students will have a good start towards middle school band or orchestra.
