Band and Orchestra classes are offered to our 5th and 6th grade students. Participation is optional. Students may choose to play a band instrument or a string instrument of their choice.
Classes are held twice a week for 45 minutes—one time during the regular school day and one time after school. Band and Orchestra classes are taught by teachers that are trained in these specific fields of study. Participation in this program is a year-long commitment. Students are also encouraged to practice at home.
5th grade classes are held Monday, 2:30-3:15 PM and Thursday, 3:15-4 PM
6th grade classes are held Monday, 3:15-4 PM and Thursday, 2:30-3:15 PM
If your student does not own an instrument, they may rent an instrument from a local music store. Our school also has a few violins available for rent through Canyon Rim Academy. A music instruction book specific to their instrument of choice must also be purchased.
Students that choose not to participate in band and orchestra instruction will have a study class during the time the other students attend the music classes.
