The West Hartford Public Schools’ Music Department will provide all students with a comprehensive, standards-based music education. The study of music fosters artistic development, critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and the pursuit of life-long learning. Through performing and responding to music, all students develop individual skills, realize a sense of belonging, and establish connections to the community.

The Music department offers courses that provide a variety of experiences for students of all abilities and musical backgrounds. These courses are designed for students who wish to pursue music as an avocation as well as those planning a career in music. Some of the courses listed below are open to all students; others require a special audition for membership. Most music classes meet daily. Students enrolling in performance groups accept the obligation to participate in all scheduled concerts and rehearsals. Students may only be excused with the instructor’s approval.

In addition to the courses listed below as Honors Level, Contract Credit is available for a limited number of juniors and seniors in conjunction with one music class. Acceptance to this Contract Honors Program is based on a student audition and portfolio, both of which will be reviewed by the music faculty.
