We celebrate Music in our Schools. Our music program offers general music instruction, piano lessons, band, and choir.
Researchers are now able to physically document the benefits of music education by doing brain studies. Our Music Specialist, Samantha McCune, offers many opportunities to learn to play the piano. Piano lessons provide a springboard for other musical skills, as well as provide mental and physical challenges that enhance lifelong learning. At Magnuson, Kindergarten students are introduced to piano lessons and receive a lesson every week as part of the school day. The lessons are group lessons, with two to three students in a group. After kindergarten, students have an opportunity to continue piano lessons that take place outside of school class time, either before school, after school, or during the lunch/recess hour.
