In these classes, the students are not taught how to play a piece of music, but are taught how to learn music. Not only will the students learn how to play woodwind instruments, or sing in a choir, or play the guitar, they will learn many aspects through basic music theory and history. In addition, each student's experience in music will help to develop self-esteem, problem solving skills, social skills, cooperation, and respect toward others.
Woodwinds:. Flutes, Clarinets, and Saxophones!
Mixed Choir: Sopranos, Altos, and Baritones!
