ABOUT

Playing an instrument is a rewarding and fun experience that helps teach discipline, teamwork, and concentration. Beginning in the end of 3rd grade, Cortland students are given the opportunity to beginning taking lessons on an instrument best suited for their natural abilities. Their skill is refined through individual and group lessons, ensemble playing and various performance opportunities. The can progress into higher level ensembles and select ensembles which continue to challenge and inspire them. These opportunities all help shape them into successful, lifelong musicians.
