You're looking at the website for the Continental Music Program.  Here you can access news, information, and details on our ensembles including upcoming events, performances, and activities.  Please bookmark this page to stay updated on all of the great things that are going on in our organization and the Green Valley music community!

The purpose of this website is to improve communication. Emails and notes home are great for many families but we understand that not all notes make it home, and not all emails get the point across.  This website will allow parents and community members to access important information at their leisure and when they need it.

If websites aren't your thing, parents and students can subscribe to continental music text message reminders, or Facebook.  

Kinder - 4th: Our early elementary program offers Kodaly, and Orff based lessons. These lessons focus heavily on beat competency, tonal center, audiation, solfege, improvisation, movement and subdivision. The typical lesson will consist of singing, playing of instruments, and movement. This lesson format gives our young students engaging learning experiences in the core subject of music.

5th: Once our students get to 5th grade, students continue their general music instruction however; they will have the opportunity to join a performance ensemble. These ensembles include Band, Choir, and Orchestra. Students learn the fundamentals of posture, breath support, tone quality, articulation, sight reading, and instrument care and maintenance. 

Middle School: Our middle school music program includes Advanced Band and Orchestra, General Music, Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Band. These performance ensembles participate in a variety of performances throughout the year including a major concert and a number of community outreach events. Our musicians function as ambassadors for the Green Valley youth community as they hone their skills as middle school musicians.
