Elementary Music

The elementary music program engages students in the performance, creation, and response to music, all of which are fundamental experiences in human expression.  Through this program, students develop:  an enjoyment of music; an awareness of and appreciation for varied styles of music, including the music of other cultures; insights into music through meaningful musical activities; self-expression and creativity; and musical skills and knowledge.  Each elementary school offers a general music program for all students and a fourth grade elective program in strings.  At the fifth grade school, every student continues with our general music program, and elective programs in band, chorus and strings are offered.
