At the elementary level (fifth and sixth grade), the instrumental music program contains two main parts:
- Weekly group lessons at the elementary school.
- Weekly after school rehearsals (mid October-March) on Tuesdays (5th grade) or Thursdays (6th grade). Students attend after school groups at the junior high they will eventually attend. Parents must provide transportation to and from these rehearsals.
Instrument choices at the elementary level are violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, and trombone. In the spring of 5th grade, band students are given an opportunity to audition for percussion.
