After years of early musical instruction—vocal, recorder, lyre—fourth graders select an orchestral instrument and the class forms an orchestra.
All students participate and the Music Teacher directs the orchestra during music class.There are several opportunities for performance, including the Spring Night Concert at Calvary Presbyterian Church.
Students take weekly instrument lessons outside of school and are expected to practice class orchestra pieces as homework. Lessons are arranged by parents with guidance from the Music Teacher. The school has long relationships with independent music teachers and many offer lessons on campus after school.
