MusicMusic is an integral part of a comprehensive education. Students discover and develop their potential through varied, sequential musical experiences in listening, performing, moving, and creating. Musical experiences cultivate critical and creative thinking skills and enhance the student's quality of life through heightened aesthetic awareness. Music integrates understanding from multiple disciplines and leads to an improved self-concept, broader cultural awareness, and a development of life-long skills.
Elementary students in grades k-6 receive classroom music instruction with a music specialist. In fifth and sixth grade, students have the opportunity to also take part in band or orchestra.
At Central Middle School, students are able to further explore and develop their musical skills and understanding through band, choir, exploring music, or orchestra.
In high school, students can continue with band, choir, orchestra, or other music courses. Eden Prairie High School also offers a wide-range of co-curricular activities for band, orchestra, and choir.
