Music is taught to build the love of music and the joy of singing. The children learn a wide range of songs including patriotic, seasonal, Hawaiian, simple rounds, and folk songs. There is a progression of instrumental instruction from percussion in the early elementary levels, to recorder, ukulele, and drums in the upper elementary levels.  Music appreciation is fostered by listening to the works of great composers.

MaryLynn Goode, incorporates singing, reading music, and teaching a progression of instruments in the music program. Students perform on a regular basis during school assemblies and events.
