The vocal music program is designed to give the students a workable knowledge of the basic elements of music and to expose them to different musical experiences. Kindergarten has one 20 minute session each week. Grades 1, 2, 3, and 5 have two 30 minute sessions each week. Grade 4 has two 35 minute sessions each week as the recorder is introduced as an aide to reading music. The Chorus is a voluntary activity for Grades 4 and 5, which meets once a week for a 30 minute session. The instrumental music instructor is at the school one day a week. This particular program is introduced at the Grade 5 level, when students are given their choice of six band instruments and receive 1 lesson of approximately ½ hour each week.
