Through the generous donations of the Glendora Education Foundation,

GUSD is able to provide music education to all 4th & 5th grade students!

==============================================

 Students may choose between choral and instrumental music.  The instrumental music program offers string instruction to fourth grade students (violin, viola, cello or bass). Fifth grade students may choose to continue on their string instrument, or pursue a band instrument (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, or baritone).

Students need to bring instruments, books, and supplies every music day!!!

 

DO YOU KNOW that your student receives a grade in music?  At the elementary level, that grade is based on participation and attitude.  If your student forgets their instrument or music book, they are not able to participate in music that day.  Students can only miss 2 days of class participation before their grade is affected.  For more information on music grades, consult the rubric HERE.

 

DO YOU KNOW what materials your student needs for his/her instrument?  If you're not sure, consult the materials list HERE.

 

DO YOU KNOW where to get music books and accessories?  While the district does not endorse or recommend any particular stores, a list of local music store is provided HERE.

Recent News - Instrumental Music

We are well underway in our instrumental music program.  Students are learning the basic techniques for their instrument.  String players are learning the fundamentals of proper bow grips, hand positions and fingerings, and good posture.  Woodwind players are getting great sounds out of their instruments and learning how to handle the delicate reeds and parts of their particular instrument.  Brass players are buzzing and blowing away!  Please encourage your student to practice at home and demonstrate for you what they are learning on their instrument.
