Our lower school music teacher has partnered with the Brooklyn Music School to bring an expanded instrumental music program to 4th and 6th graders. Students choose among several instrument choices (flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone or saxophone) and, in twice weekly lessons, learn how to read music and play major scales and simple songs. After school band programs offer an opportunity for continued practice and development as part of Kids Cre8 instrumental ensembles.
The Brooklyn Music School, located in Fort Greene, has spread the joy of music for more than 100 years. It views music and performance as the birthright of all people, an essential way that human beings connect with others and explore their creativity. The study of music has been demonstrated to enhance academic learning and helps to develop discipline and confidence that will serve children well throughout their lives.
