Welcome to Music!

Saddleback Valley Unified's Elementary Music Program supports ALL Kindergarten through 6th grade students across all elementary schools in our district. We offer general music instruction for students in kindergarten through fourth grade, through the exploration of foundational musical concepts with a variety of instruments and vocal training. After students master the fundamentals of music, they progress to string instrument instruction (violin) in fifth grade, and the option of a second year strings or wind instrument instruction (clarinet or trumpet) in sixth grade.

As stated in the California Arts Education Framework for the Public Schools, music education, “enriches students’ lives while providing challenging, engaging, personally fulfilling, and creative learning” (CA Arts Frameworks, 2020). SVUSD strongly believes in the development of the whole child and our Elementary Music program is a core investment in our students’ multi-literacy.
