Green Lake has always supported instrumental music, for 4th and 5th graders. Our kids have access to some of the best high school music programs in the nation, at Roosevelt and Garfield High Schools, and we are able to get them started on the right foot!Each 4th and 5th grader who chooses to may play an instrument receives 30 minutes weekly instruction from a certificated SPS music teacher. We work closely with neighborhood music stores, and our PTA provides scholarships, to ensure that every child has an opportunity to learn an instrument. Kids learn to read music, as well as the basics of rhythm, beat and keeping time. This instruction culminates in a terrific concert each Spring, where all kids play several pieces.
