Students in grades fourth through eighth take part in learning how to play orchestral instruments such as violin, clarinet, guitar, and percussion as part of their in-school curriculum courses. The music program is meant to provide opportunities for our students to develop their social, emotional, and physical skills. The music program is part of the school’s weekly curriculum and is held every Tuesday. Learning how to play an instrument and read musical notes has proven to increase memory capacity, teach perseverance, better mathematical abilities, improve reading and comprehension skills, teach discipline, elevate performance skills and reduce stage fright. We are very excited to provide this wonderful opportunity for our students. Sacred Heart Elementary is committed in providing all students in all grades the opportunity to enrich their lives and lead them towards success through music.
