Elementary Music

St. Dominic music program is based on the mission of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association and Minnesota Orff. The mission is dedicated to the creative music and movement approach developed by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. Orff and Keetman, two German composers, created this approach as a way to build an understanding of music in every learner by integrating music, movement, speech, and drama.

Weekly Mass

The goal and purpose of Mass music are to guide and lead learners to a faith-based education while preparing and performing in weekly mass. Mass music teaches the word of God and Catholic Liturgy and it provides a way for school and community to celebrate our faith and communicate with God. The music further provides a solid spiritual foundation for all learners, our community and the congregation.
