The Saline music program offers the students of Saline balanced instruction in music appreciation, history, theory, and performance. The achievements of the ensembles are highlighted in public performances and community service projects, of which there are over 70 per year. The fourteen music teachers strive to provide a balanced and comprehensive musical experience that challenges and motivates students at all levels.

Elementary students in Saline receive 60 minutes of general music instruction each week in which they experience a wide variety of musical styles and activities. Then in 5th through 12th grade students have the opportunity to participate in many large ensembles, small ensembles, and solo venues.
