General Music

Music Education

Music is elemental and universal. Music is instinctual: children around the world begin singing with the same interval, parents use song to calm and quiet their children, and adults refer to musical cues for memory.

Through music education, students are engaged as active learners, building life skills required to create, enjoy, perform, and listen to music. Music education enhances skills in problem solving, communication, team work, and the ability to make connections across disciplines.

District 205 provides general music instruction for all students from kindergarten through middle school. In addition, students are given the opportunity for choral and instrumental instruction beginning in fourth grade and continuing through high school. Music course work is also a means of fulfilling the high school fine arts requirement.
