Fourth & Fifth Grade Music Choices

Fourth and Fifth Graders at SPARK have several choices to make about the courses they'd like to study for Music. 

See the tabs at the top of the page for videos of performances by each ensemble!

FIFTH GRADERS who plan to continue with their selections from last year do not have to do anything further. Any changes require a parental note indicating this year's selections; however, switching from Band to Orchestra (or vice versa) is not permitted. 

The Music@SPARK staff encourages all students to stick with their choices and really give their training their best effort throughout Fourth and Fifth grades!

You may indicate your choices here:

The choices and additional information are listed below.
5th graders who were in Band or Orchestra last year will be automatically re-enrolled in their chosen ensemble.
