The music department offers private instruction for music students of all ages and levels. The level of instruction depends on the ability of the student. Some take for promotion in band or orchestra, others take for the shear enjoyment of learning, while others take for the opportunity to perform on stage. Music students have a recital twice a year in a theater.
