mus Each student at Auburn Elementary school receives music instruction twice a week for thirty minutes.  We have two fully-equipped music classrooms with instruments and instructional technology. Each grade level has the opportunity to perform in one musical program each school year, and we also enjoy having our school-wide Holiday Singalong in December!   

The music program at Auburn Elementary strives to ensure that each student has a positive experience in the musical classroom setting. We hope to instill a desire within the students to make music a part of their lives, giving them a sense of confidence in becoming active participants, listeners, and consumers of music for their lifetime. Students are given the opportunity to participate in singing songs, playing a variety of rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic instruments, and learning folk dances in a variety of styles and cultures. This helps to create an understanding of how music is influenced by major historical events. From these classroom experiences, students are given opportunities to participate as a performer which may be presented to the public.
