Music at Hillside

Students go to music class once a week for 55 minutes.

Students learn a variety of terms, symbols, games, dances, and about instruments in music class. The Fine Arts department provides transportation each year for third graders to attend a play at a local high school and for fourth graders to see and hear the Garland Symphony Orchestra perform.

Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to play a string instrument in addition to regular music class. Please refer to the Orchestra section of the website.

We are committed to the education of the whole child and as a component of that education believe that:

  • every student should have a basic knowledge, skills and appreciation of the fine arts.
  • a quality arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self motivation, and cooperation necessary for success in life.
