Music


W on drums during dinerWith Keystone's emphasis on the arts, children experience music and movement on a daily, multi-aged basis. Our students choose many of the songs we learn are involved in the planning of performances, along with other students and staff. It is a common belief at Keystone that music plays a central role in our lives and brings us joy. Building community and strong hearts and minds is one of the vital rewards of our music time. 

Our "Keystone Choir" is an atypical singing group comprised of the whole school. Our children enjoy learning songs from different generations and traveling to retirement homes and corporations to share the blessing of children's voices lifted in song. They move freely and with great flair and expression, bringing joy to their audiences. Return performances are always requested! This is one of the Keystone gifts to the community that gives important messages right back to the children.

Children are encouraged to share their gifts during Music time, whether it be through voice, instruments, or movement. Music time follows Pasture every morning and helps our children begin their day with a song in their hearts.


Original Keystone Songs

HEY KEYSTONE

 Hey Keystone, is a school I know.

 It’s the coolest school around.

 When they open up the doors,

 The Kids run all around.

 Hey Keystone, is a place to learn,

 A place ideas grow.

 Kids they like to shout it out.

 They want the whole world to know.

 But when it’s time to quiet down,

 The grownups they just say,

 “HEY KEYSTONE”

 “HEY WHAT”


 

PASS IT ON

It only takes a spark to get a fire going.

And soon all those around will warm up to its glowing.

 That’s how it is at Keystone, once you experience it.

 We want to sing, what joy it brings. We want to pass it on.

 

 I wish for you each day, this happiness that I have found.

 We all depend on friends; it matters not where we are bound.

 Let’s, shout it from the mountain tops

 And let our world know

 Keystone is love, a time to grow, a time to pass it on.

 Keystone is love, a time to grow, a time to pass it on.


RISE UP KEYSTONE

 Rise up Keystone, come and play (Rise Up!)

Rise up Keystone, and say "Hey!" (Hey Keystone!)

And childhood is the order of the day. (Yee Haw!)

Rise up Keystone hearts and minds.

We will be the best we can be with our Keystone family,

Always standing here by our sides.

We are brave, we are kind, we have strong hearts and minds.

Keystone gives us wings so we can fly.
