All students at WES take music classes every week. Students develop skills in singing, rhythm, music reading, music history, composing, and performance. Beginning in 3rd grade, students learn to play the recorder (a small flute-like instrument). A letter providing all the information on recorders will be sent home during the first week of school. The study of the recorder is continued through the 5th grade.
The following grade levels culminate their study by public performances: Kindergarten: graduation performance (May) 1st Grade: annual holiday program (December) 2nd Grade: as scheduled 3rd Grade: annual recorder concert (April) 4th Grade: as scheduled 5th Grade: as scheduled. In addition to the general music classes both chorus and string orchestra are available to students.
