Students in grades 4, 5 and 6 who are interested in learning to play woodwind, brass and percussion instruments are invited to participate in the Elementary Instrumental Music Program. Beginning in the 4th grade, the North Hills School District offers intermediate grade-level students the opportunity to learn to perform on one of following instruments: flute, clarinet, oboe, alto saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba and percussion instruments such as mallet instruments, drums and auxiliary instruments. In the 5th and 6th grades, additional instruments are offered including piccolo, bass clarinet, tenor and baritone saxophones and double French horn. Large, school-owned instruments such as the French horn, baritone and tuba are available to interested students.

Two full-time teachers are employed to instruct fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students in small group settings on a weekly basis throughout the school year at all four elementary buildings. At the conclusion of the students’ sixth-grade year, they are then able to continue performing on their selected instruments by participating in one of the many band ensembles at the middle school.
