NCCAS – Kindergarten

See how each Quaver lesson meets NCCAS Music Standards with our interactive NCCAS Standards Crosswalk.

Select a grade, then click any lesson title to explore the content correlated to each standard!

TWO IMPORTANT TIPS FOR REVIEWING QUAVER LESSONS:

  1. Remember to always view the NOTES section in the bottom left corner of each Lesson Screen. These notes often contain important information related to fulfilling NCCAS Standards, and are a critical component of our Curriculum.
  2. Quaver Music operates in an environment that requires popup windows. Simply add QuaverMusic.com as an exception in your browser preferences. For helpful instructions on how to adjust that setting on your browser, go to http://www.QuaverMusic.com/Popup
