Westside Christian School offers several different elective options to help develop your child’s musical talent. The music program develops in students an appreciation and understanding of music, allowing them to glorify God through their voices and musical instruments. For more information on any of our music programs listed below, please call (608) 831-8540.
Learning to play the piano is a skill that can last a lifetime. Westside Christian School gives students in 4K through grade 8 the opportunity to develop that skill through a school piano program. The goal of the program is to develop students’ maximum keyboard potential for use in the classroom, home, and worship. Students receive 30-minute, weekly lessons.
Another way to develop musical talent in students is through a school band program. Our band program offers weekly lessons and group band sessions for children in grades 4 – 8 on the following instruments: flute, trumpet, clarinet, French horn, saxophone, trombone, percussion, baritone horn, and oboe. The different instruments are demonstrated to those interested in the program during the first week of school.
