As a 5th grader, your child finally has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Music, by joining orchestra! Despite our current situation with COVID-19 we will ensure that our students receive a valuable and fulfilling experience by making the necessary accomodations to our program. String players can indeed play with masks on!
Music Educaiton is more than just playing an instrument. It is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his brain, while at the same time, learning a foreign language... MUSIC.
All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically outperform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that instrumental music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs or alcohol.
