BOCES Arts in Education

Music Instrument Fee Form

The Island Trees School District is proud of its fine and performing arts programs. Music and Art education is designed to foster an understanding and appreciation of the arts while addressing the N.Y.S. Learning Standards. Students will create, perform and participate in the arts, know and use arts materials and resources, respond to and analyze works of art, and understand the cultural dimensions and contributions of the arts. These aims are met through participation in a performing group (band, orchestra, chorus), general music, or art classes.

Instrumental music and chorus is offered beginning in the 4th grade. The music and art program provides sequential instruction for all K-7 students, with elective offerings for students grade 7-12. Students may choose from a variety of ability-based vocal and instrumental classes, including orchestras, concert and marching bands, jazz ensembles (instrumental and vocal), concert and show choirs.

Art electives include drawing, painting, photography, 3-dimensional design, advertising design, fashion design and graphic arts.

In addition, there are opportunities to perform in theatrical productions at the middle and high school.

"Whoever neglects the arts when he is young has lost the past and is dead to the future." - Sophocles
