Cottage Lane Elementary Music Department

By the time the students finish the fifth grade, they have been instructed in reading music, recognizing rhythms, singing on pitch, playing the recorder (which begins in third grade) and performance on the Orff mallet instruments, an internationally recognized forum of music education. Our instrumental program begins in the third grade, where students can receive instruction on a woodwind, brass, percussion or string instrument. We’re very happy to say that on an average, 60% of all third graders elected to take music lessons and overall, approximately 60% of the students at Cottage Lane are taking weekly music instruction.
