BPS music programs are as varied as the art form itself. From concert bands to steel pan orchestras, large choruses to vocal soloists, students have access to a wide range of opportunities in classrooms and on stages throughout the city. Students are learning to play instruments, sing, and create their own music using acoustic, electronic and digital sound sources. Students also engage in music learning activities that mirror literacy strategies, providing a natural foundation for Common Core connections in the music curriculum. As the district embraces the Common Core and National Core Arts Standards, all music teachers are invited to participate in important conversations aimed at growing the next generation of musicians and music patrons.
