During school, fourth and fifth grade students receive a half-hour weekly lesson. Classroom teachers instruct their students how to make-up missed assignments while attending their lessons. Each Student is expected to practice six times a week for twenty to thirty minutes. Students are required to bring practice logs signed by their guardian to each lesson. This practice log is the key to success in instrumental music. Fifth grade students perform both a winter and spring concert. Fourth graders perform their first concert in spring.
