Beginning in 3rd grade, students receive weekly lessons on their instrument. For the 2019-20 school year, all beginning instrumental students' lessons are on Fridays, while lessons for 5th and 6th grade returning students are on Mondays.
Upon their second year of playing the instrument, students in grades 4-6 join the Concert Band, which rehearses weekly on Mondays. Students in Concert Band perform at various events throughout the school year, including a winter and spring concert.
