Elementary School Vocal Music

Elementary music is a district-provided program and is therefore consistent throughout the district.

Program Synopsis (Grades K-3)

Students in grades K-3 are no longer provided with music instruction.  However, many elementary schools throughout the district have hired program specialists with private funds to help offset program cuts.  Check individual schools for information.

Program Synopsis (Grades 4-6)

Students receive two forty-minute lessons a week.  The music curriculum is based on the Irvine Unified School District's Music Scope and Sequence, as well as the California State Framework. The elementary music program and staff are highly regarded throughout the County, and are used as a bench mark of quality for other school Districts. Each respective school provides a culminating concert at the end of the year.

The elementary music staff is considered to be one of the finest groups of music educators in all of Southern California.  Many of the teachers provide workshops and clinics on the county and regional levels for other music educators. Their skills and dedication have helped to sustain one of the finest elementary music programs in Southern California. Many of them are active professional musicians.
