Music Program

MusicWe are very fortunate to have a Music Program and a Music Specialist at EFR.  Mr. David McKeen is teaching in his eleventh year at EFR and has taught music throughout his entire teaching career of 26 years.  This experience ensures that our English and French students receive a well-rounded program which helps to develop musicianship skills through Orff activities, choral work, recorder and ukulele skills.  Mr. McKeen has worked, and continues to work, with some of the best musicians in the world offering opportunities for the children to participate and perform with various musicians through concerts and workshops. 

The students also participate in the annual South Peace Festival of the Arts and regularly perform at that festival’s Honour Concert.  In addition to this, Mr. McKeen delivers curriculum developed by music educators that are regarded as the best in North America – if not, the world. 

Studies have shown how important music is for brain development.  The ability students gain in reading music and playing an instrument, provides for a well-rounded learner and we are fortunate to have all students involved in music at EFR.
