3rd Grade Instrument Information

Instrument Info!

Learn an Instrument

Dear Parents/Guardians,
In 4th grade all Haddon Township students are given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. All instruments are provided in 4th grade to students free of cost! The only cost is a minimal fee for the lesson book that is used in 4th and 5th grade. All 3rd graders will visit the high school for an instrument information session before having to choose their instrument. Below is the description of instruments to help you and your child make a more informed decision.

Sincerely,
Abigail Marmelstein (Band)
Cheryl Van Buren (Orchestra)
