Elementary Music Recruitment Assemblies

Since we are back with our 'live' music classes, that means our music teachers were out to each of our 21 elementary schools the first two weeks of school to perform assemblies where students can learn about the music program and what their choices are for music this school year! 
Music Class Choices
After your school's music assembly, your student will receive a brochure from their classroom teacher which explains our elementary music program and how to sign-up for an instrument or vocal music! We also have provided here a PDF of your student's choices by grade level. You can click on the appropriate PDF link below to see and download that detailed list of classes for each grade level.

Methods Books for our Band & String Classes
This year, the elementary music team will be continuing with our instrumental music curriculum!

Elementary Music Enrollment Form
Once your student has seen our assembly at their school, they will bring home the brochure about our program. After you have had a chance to read ALL the information about our program on the brochure they brought home to you and you and your student have decided what their choice is for music this year, please fill out the enrollment and contract part of the brochure completely and have your student return it to their classroom teacher. Their classroom teacher will give it to your student's music teacher so the music teacher can enroll your student in the music class of their choice for the year.
