Welcome to the music classes page. Our students at CK are busy not just learning to sing, but also reading & writing music, dancing and playing instruments. I hope you find the information below helpful to you and your child. Remember to visit the K-LOVE website for the free music download (1 per week). They feature a different Christian artist every week. And as Britt Nicole says...you are worth more than gold!
Congratulations to the names below who made it into the talent show this year. Remember....The Talent Show will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd at 7:00PM. All students named below are required to attend the two MANDATORY practices in their entirety.
Anyone unable to attend both of the mandatory practices will not be allowed to perform at the talent show. Students must remain for the entire practice sessions (no early dismissals). Students should quietly work on homework or read while others are performing. Talking, texting, running, dancing and practicing on your own is not allowed and may result in not being allowed to perform.
While at the practices students may do homework, eat an after school snack (if they bring one) and respectfully watch others practice on stage. Practice will end at 4:30 and parents may pick up their child at the AB at this time. Any student who has not been picked up by 4:40 will be taken to extended day.
During the night of the Talent Show, students must be in their assigned seats (and remain there until their perfromance time) by 6:45. Due to proper concert etiquette, protocol and basic respect for others, all students are to stay until the event has ended.
Students who are unable to follow these rules and guidelines may not be allowed to participate in the talent show.
Those students not chosen to perform at the talent show are welcome to perform in front of their classmates at the end of the year during music/gym classes. You should all be proud of your efforts - I know I'm proud of everyone who tried out!

We start each class out with this "musician's prayer."
Oh, Lord, please bless my music
That it might glorify Your name,
May using it to serve You
Always be my aim
Let it be a witness
To Your majesty and love
And remind us that You're watching
From Your throne above
Oh, Lord, I ask for guidance in everything I do
And pray You'll make my music and instrument for You.

After saying the "Musician's Prayer," each class watches/listens to a featured "song of the day." Below is a list of songs that have been featured as a "Song of the Day" during the 2012-2013 school year.
