In celebration of September as Classical Music Month, Shore Road students are learning about a few of the world’s most famous classical music composers. In addition to classical music playing during dismissal, a large bulletin board stands in the lobby with pictures and information about Mozart, Beethoven and other composers who have made a significant contribution to the world of music.
September was designated as Classical Music Month in 1994 under President Bill Clinton’s administration to celebrate the artistic talents of musicians throughout the world. As part of this annual celebration, music teacher Laura Laude created the bulletin board in the lobby to emphasize the importance of music, and pictures of famous composers adorn the walls of the music classrooms. In addition to this month’s lessons, students learn facts and notable works by these composers throughout the year.
