Elementary Music Opportunities

Introduction to music education begins in the early years, with weekly music classes where students begin to learn fundamental music theory. In fourth and fifth grades, students have the opportunity to participate in Strings or Band. It’s a joy to experience the excitement as our young students discover new instruments and learn to perform as part of a group.
