Welcome to Glastonbury Public Schools Music Department 

Glastonbury Public Schools' Music performances are an outgrowth of the music curriculum and reflect the music learning process. Music making, a complex intellectual emotional and physical activity is musi
cal knowledge in action. This process challenges student's reactive and higher order thinking.
