Students attend music classes once a week. The music program exposes students to a variety of experiences designed to foster the development of musical concepts. Students engage in singing, listening, moving, and rhythmic activities that encourage music reading, appreciation and creativity. Time is also allowed for small group instruction. Grades are based on conduct and participation, not talent. Special musical events are held throughout the year.
WMR Honor Choir is an extracurricular group that performs throughout the year. The Honor Choir meets once a week after school to rehearse. The purpose of the WMR Honor Choir is to expose students to choral music and choral singing at an early age. Hopefully, this will encourage students to continue their participation in musical groups as they gain a better understanding and appreciation for choral music. The Wrights Mill Road Honor Choir consists of students in grades 3, 4 and 5.
