Music Arts

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 program of the West Hartford Public schools provides a rich and rigorous experience for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Basic skills are introduced at the 11 elementary schools, while at the 3 middle schools there is a larger emphasis on improving ensemble skills. The high schools feature age and ability leveled ensembles that perform throughout the year. Our school offers over a dozen courses where students hone their selected performance skills, vocally and instrumentally.
