Lessons are scheduled for 30-minutes and are given to small groups of the same or similar instruments once per week during the school day. When a student decides to play a musical instrument, they will learn through a variety “hands on” activities. Lesson plans are standards based driven and are specially designed to suit the individual needs and potentials of each student. Various performing ensembles are offered to enhance the musical experience.
The main goal of in-school instrumental music instruction is to not only instill a sound appreciation for music but also act as a valuable tool to reinforce critical thinking skills and provide learning strategies which will ultimately assist students to become successful independent life long learners. Instrumental music lessons often mark the beginning of a lifetime of studying and playing a musical instrument.
Lessons are scheduled during the school day and all students will be expected to make-up missed school work. Students will not be pulled from math or reading blocks. Most lessons will occur during tier time and lunch/recess time. Occasionally, depending on the circumstance, some lessons are scheduled during social studies/science time. Scheduling is based on the individual need of each student.
