AUSD offers general music for grades 1-3, a 4th “wheel” of choir, recorder and general music, and a 5th grade option to participate in Band, Choir or Musical Theater. The program is consistent for all three Albany elementary schools (although each school has its own instructor for grades 1-3).
Albany Music Fund supports all these programs with:
- Supplies for all classes
- Sheet music (for Band and Choir)
- Script rights (for Musical Theater)
- T-Shirts for Band, Choir and Musical Theater
- Instrument repairs for borrowed instruments
- Aides for 5th grade band
In 2016-17, Albany Music Fund has also granted AUSD funds for 14 weeks of Kindergarten music. This program is 100% funded by AMF.
