Latimer is proud of Moreland's award-winning instrumental music program. By joining Moreland’s music program, your student will join a program that aligns with state and national curriculum standards for music education.
Instrumental music is introduced in 4th grade, when they learn to play the recorder. The students are also introduced to the instruments used in band and orchestra. If your student chooses to participate in music, they can select an instrument and begin small group instruction. They finish the year celebrating their musical accomplishments in concert with all the 4th and 5th grade students at their school.
In 5th grade, students continue to develop their musical skills in small group lessons during the week as well as full band/orchestra rehearsals once per week. The students enjoy multiple opportunities to perform, including the Halloween concert at the Moreland Pumpkin Patch, the Winter Concert, and Spring Concert.
