"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." Plato
In general music we explore the elements of music such as melody, rhythm, form, tone color and harmony. This is done through singing, movement, composing, analyzing and playing a variety of instruments. Students will have the opportunity to share their musical knowledge and achievement throughout their elementary school years.

Instrumental Music at Olney Elementary School is open to all fourth and fifth grade students. It's a great way to learn how to play a wind instrument or a string instrument! Students develop self-discipline in practicing music and performing in a group. There are over one hundred band and string students in instrumental music this year. During the year, we'll perform for school assemblies and evening concerts. Many students continue playing instruments in groups in middle school and high school.
