• Instrumental Music Program Curriculum
      
    There are never ending benefits of children learning to play instruments. Playing an instrument aids in their brain development and also provides your child with a creative outlet. Students learn responsibility, mental discipline, teamwork, self-esteem and, above all, an enjoyment and lifelong appreciation of music.  Instrumental Music is offered to Grade 4 and Grade 5 students and is taught by Paul Mariconda.
