In music, students are provided with a balanced approach to learning, supplementing to the work they are already doing in their classrooms. This approach emphasizes critical thinking and creative problem solving, developing musical skills, and responding to aesthetic qualities in music. Instruction in the music classroom is a discipline based approach that covers the music standards appropriate to each grade level.

The music room is a place to allow the students to be creative! They will have the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary as future creators, performers, and consumers of music. Music provides the experience to help students acquire independence, a positive self-image, and a sense of responsibility.
