The elementary school music program provides students in grades K-5 with the opportunity to experience music through a variety of activities. During music class an emphasis is placed on meeting the individual needs of each student. Classroom activities include rhythmic development, awareness of the singing voice, introduction to the families of instruments, use of rhythm instrument accompaniment, development of listening skills and creative movement, as well as the introduction to music of different cultures and various styles of music.

Beginning in the 4th grade, students have the option of learning to play string instruments or band instruments.  Instruction is offered on violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and percussion.  Instrumental music students receive weekly small group lessons during the school day.  Orchestra and band meet as a large ensemble once weekly before school.
