Mrs. Cassandra McGlenn, Director

Music Appreciation offers students an opportunity to learn the basics of reading music and rhythms as well as giving a bit of music history.  Students are not required to play an instrument or perform.  Students who take music appreciation learn the love of music in hopes of leading to a performance-based class in the future!
