Choral Music

Welcome to Chorus

 My name is Lara Lee Bugeja and I am the General Music/Choral teacher at Plumosa School of the Arts.  I have a B.A. in Music from Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina and have been teaching at Plumosa since 2001.  


The K-2 Curriculum will include:

·    The students will sing songs that are culturally diverse alone an with others with appropriate tone, pitch, and rhythm, with and without accompaniment.

·    The students will read and notate music.

·    The students improvise melodies, variations, and accompaniments.

·    The students compose and arrange music within specific guidelines.

·    The students will understand music in relation to culture and history.

·    The students will listen to, analyze, and describe music.

·    The students will evaluate music and music performances.

·    The students will understand the relationship between music, the other arts, and disciplines outside the arts.

·    The students will understand the relationship between music and the world beyond the school setting.


The 3rd – 5th Grade Curriculum will include (including all of the above):

·    The students will maintain their own part and using proper breathing techniques and a pleasing tone, with and without accompaniments.

·    The students will use appropriate expressive and stylistic devices including dynamics, tone quality, phrasing, articulation and interpretation.

·    The students will blend vocal timbres, match dynamic levels and respond to the cues of the conductor when singing as part of a group.


I will also be offering a K-2 Chorus that will meet after school on Tuesdays from 2:30 – 3:45 pm.  Permission slips/Parent consent and an audition are required.

I look forward to exploring the world of music with your children this year!!


Musically yours,

Lara Lee Bugeja
