The Bethel Public Schools' Music Department is proud to have been named A Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM foundation for the past ten years. Our programs offer education in ensemble performance (band, chorus, orchestra), general music, modern band instruments (piano, guitar, ukulele, bass), and music technology (digital music, recording studio).

Students can elect to begin learning a string instrument (violin, viola, cello) in 3rd grade and a band instrument in 4th grade. Our choral program also begins in 4th grade.

Below you'll find our curriculum documents. The Music Department is consistently updating and revising our curriculum. In addition to the courses below, we offer numerous extra curricular programs, including Jazz Band in grades 6-HS, Musical grades 4-12 and Marching Band in high school.
