General Music Classes

Statement of purpose:Music education should provide the opportunity for students to perform, create, and respond to music.Through singing, playing instruments, moving to and creating music, the students will acquire musical skills and knowledge. Learning to read and notate music allows students to explore music independently and with others. The study of music develops self-awareness through aesthetic experiences. It develops an appreciation for the students’ own history and cultural heritage and that of the global society.

Band, Chorus, Orchestra

String Orchestra instruments and Chorus instruction and ensembles begin in the 4th grade, and Band instruments and ensembles are available beginning in the 5th grade. Group lessons are included as part of the instrumental music program. Nearly 100% of Westport's 4th and 5th graders participate in the Orchestras and Bands, a tradition of which Westport is most proud. These 4th and 5th graders, as well as the provided pre-K-5 classroom general music program, are the foundation for the exceptional Bands, Orchestras, and Choruses to be found Westport's middle schools and at Staples High School.
