Music (Grade 8)

In Grade 8, students attain greater skill in using instruments and voice and with other musical forms (ensembles). They identify elements of music and use the vocabulary of music.

  • Sings or performs a variety of music-independently or in groups
  • Reads music symbols and notes and uses them to compose and to evaluate and analyze music 
  • Identifies, describes, classifies, and responds to music of various cultures and historical periods

Wisconsin’s Model Academic Standards for Music represent a vision of what students should know and be able to do in music. In view of the current and continuing research on the effects of music education on cognition, implementation of these standards can greatly benefit developing minds.
