General music is offered at every elementary campus in the District. All Students in grades K - 5 receive music instruction. The elementary music program is based on the North East Standards and includes singing, moving, playing, instruments, listening to music from noted masters from all periods and from different cultures, learning to read music, creating personal musical experiences, and evaluating musical performances.
Many elementary campuses offer the opportunity for students to be part of a special choir that rehearses before or after school. The choirs present programs at PTA meetings during the school year. Recorder clubs and/or choir chime clubs are also available on some campuses. During holiday seasons, the elementary choirs and other special groups frequently provide community service by performing at various venues including nursing homes, the airport, the River Walk, hotels, and other invitational areas.
