Elementary Music

All students in grade K-5 have music class once a cycle.  Students participate in singing, movement, instrument playing and composition.  Students learn to express themselves through experiencing, making, and creating music.  

Students in Grades 3,4 and 5 have the opportunity to participate in the Instrumental and Vocal music ensembles.  Please see the band, orchestra, or chorus page for details on those programs.
