Welcome, Woodland Families!

Welcome to music at Woodland School!  Students will explore music making and literacy through singing, playing, movement and listening.  Preschool and Kindergarten meet once a week for 30 minutes, and Grades 1-3 meet for 30 minutes twice a week.  We have two annual music concerts in December and May. Please see the calendar for these dates.

Third graders will have the option to participate in Chorus beginning in January.  Information and sign-ups will be forthcoming! See below for information regarding 3rd Grade orchestra.

I look forward to a musical year ahead!

Beginning in the fall, each student in 3rd grade at both Woodland and Country School will have the opportunity to join string orchestra.  In addition to learning music, students will gain high self-esteem, learn self-discipline, problem solving, goal-setting, and the importance of teamwork; all skills needed in life beyond elementary school.  We highly encourage all students to take advantage of this incredible opportunity.

String orchestra students will meet for one half-hour class within the school day, as well as one after-school rehearsal each week.   Below are the designated rehearsal days for your planning purposes. We look forward to welcoming many of you to our Weston music community

After-School Rehearsals

  • Country Orchestra Rehearsals:  Wednesday from 2:20-3:15
  • Woodland Orchestra Rehearsals:  Thursday from 2:20-3:15
