• The Chandler Unified School District 5th grade students have a choice of three musical experiences. Student’s may choose between band, orchestra, or general music. These classes occur during the regular school day for 30 minutes, three to four times each week. Classroom instruction is not interrupted, so students do not miss class in order to play an instrument.


    Please take the time to speak with your student about this exciting new opportunity.  For more information on the various instrument choices, please watch our band and orchestra instrument demonstration videos. These videos contain helpful information to help you choose the instrument that best fits your student.  To register your child for next year’s music class, please complete this registration form by Friday, May 21st.  This is an important decision since we require that your child make a one-year commitment to the music class of his/her choice, so therefore, please do not hesitate in reaching out with any questions.


    We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s musical education.


    If you have questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Chappell (Band) or Ms. Oh (Orchestra)
