East Grand Rapids Public Schools

Tradition of Excellence

K-12 Music Department

Music is a basic form of human expression. As a universal language, it enriches the understanding of all cultures. Therefore, every student must experience a balanced, sequential program of music education that develops and embraces musical expression and literacy.
The Music Department of East Grand Rapids Schools is committed to enriching students' lives through comprehensive and required music education. We will nurture in each student the development of musical talents, skills, and knowledge by offering choral, instrumental, and appreciation curricula. Through a variety of performance and learning opportunities, we will foster team work, growth in self-esteem, community responsibility, respect for all cultures, and a life-long recognition of the intrinsic worth of music in the human experience.
