Campus View Elementary Music Program

piano

We are proud to have a strong music program at Campus View Elementary School. All students from Kindergarten to Grade 5 receive music instruction every week with our specialist music teachers.  Campus View also offers a strings program for interested students in Grade 5 which is taught by a district specialist teacher. The general music program focuses on the development of in-tune singing, music literacy and composition skills. Primary students have the opportunity to play various percussion and Orff instruments in their classes.  Intermediate students learn to play recorder and ukulele as part of the regular music curriculum.  Students also have the opportunity to join several extra-curricular groups throughout the year.  The Campus View Music Program is an integral part of our school culture.   Please click on the links located on the left to find out more about our music program.

Campus View Orffestra Groups Enter CBC Music Challenge 2018

150 students signed up for our extra-curricular Orffestra Club this year.  Because of the huge interest, two Orffestra groups were created.  One group has been working on Serena Ryder’s “What I Wouldn’t Do” and the other group has been working on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.  Both groups worked extremely hard and submitted videos that they can be very proud of!  Please watch our videos below.

What I Wouldn’t Do

Hallelujah
