In Music, students cultivate a set of artistic dispositions that will enable them to grow and develop as lifelong learners. Student choice and voice are essential components of the Music program, where all members of the community have the opportunity to develop craft, engage and persist, envision, express, observe, reflect, stretch, explore, and come to understand the art world.

Kindergarteners learn keyboarding, percussion, dance, singing, and ukulele skills, which become more sophisticated throughout their grade school years at MSES. In second grade, students start to play acoustic and electric guitar. In third grade, our emphasis is on violin, and every student has their own instrument. Fourth graders learn to play the natural horn, and in fifth grade, students have the chance to focus on an instrument of choice or continue exploring their many musical options.
