Musical programs are available to students in grades K – 12 and include offerings in vocal, classroom, music appreciation and instrumental music.

In grades 4 and 5 students may also elect to receive instrumental training on wind or string instruments. In middle school, instrumental students may continue their studies or sing in a school choral ensemble. At the high school level, students who are planning careers in music or who are interested in music as a part-time source of income, or as a hobby, will find educational opportunities available to them. All students must take and pass a Fine Arts course for graduation. High school courses include Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Guitar, Percussion, Music Technology, Music Appreciation, and Musical Theater.
