Music

Glen Urquhart values the special joy of making music together and strives to inspire students to become lifelong music-makers. All students become active musicians who sing, play the recorder, and participate in instrumental and choral ensembles; literate musicians who understand, read, and write the written language of music; listening musicians who discern, understand, and respond to the music they hear; and world musicians who understand and appreciate music and the role of music in our own and other cultures.

Special music ensembles include the GUS Chorus, in which all 4th and 5th grade students participate, and the GUS Band, an elective before-school activity, open to students, grades 5-8. A Beginner Band prepares 4th Graders to participate the following year.
