Music Innovation Lab

The Music Innovation Lab of Wise School is an innovative, state of the art, creative laboratory where student artists explore their musical selves in a progressive, open, yet challenging setting.

One half of the room, is called The Music Lab, and consists of twelve Mac computer stations, complimented with piano keyboards for teaching our music curriculum that corresponds with the California Standards of Music Education, yet approaches the subject in a fun, graphic, and interactive

Each child is learning music theory, harmony, and rhythm, and is learning to read notes, as well as ear training. Our student artists will also be exploring the adventurous and creative world of composing, and will be writing their own songs, as well as experimenting with loop samples with the program Garageband. There is always a Jewish Values component in all we do, so we also discuss how the music we create can be helpful and healing in our society and world.

The second half of the room is called The Earth Room, with exotic, international rugs under our feet, and a full collection of exotic percussion from around the world. Our student artists learn about community and respect of each other through our Drum Circle Program. All grades participate and share the joy of world rhythms and learn about the music of different cultures. We sing a wide variety of music, including songs that reflect historical moments in Israel and America.
