GENERAL MUSIC PROGRAM UPDATE

The Cambrian School District is committed to providing all students the opportunity to access enriching music education. Our trained musicians and educators provide general music education for all students during the instructional day at all of our school sites. In addition, the Cambrian School District has a wonderful after-school opportunity for students to sing with a choir or learn to play a band or instrument in a group setting. The Cambrian Band and Choir program is offered at both elementary and middle school. Cambrian music educators and staff are completely dedicated to making sure your child receives the best music education possible at Cambrian, and we appreciate your ongoing support.
