What is Music like at CHES?

At Center Hill, each student comes to music activity for 45 minutes once every six school days. During this time, we learn how to play, sing, and read music! We practice creating and listening. We keep our bodies healthy and learn to understand beat/rhythm through movement. 

I will keep in contact with parents by sending notes home, and by messaging via Remind 101 (codes to join Remind 101 are below). 

Students grades 4-5 also have the opportunity to be in choir! Fourth and Fifth grade students can audition to be in the Mustang Singers. These auditions will be in October this year and will be done virtually! 

Choir students practice in the mornings, 8:00-8:25,  twice per week. These students participate in extra concerts, field trips, and assemblies


Students K-5 will participate in one full-grade musical program per year. These dates will be available on this page, paper reminders will be sent home, and remind messages will be sent out also. All programs will be in person this year (as far as we know!)

Please see the schedule below to determine your student's music day!
