The Willowbrook music program has a long history of excellence. Students may participate in Band, Choir, Orchestra, Class Piano, Guitar, or in AP Music Theory. Please explore your area of interest by clicking on the menu in the lower left-hand corner of this page. We have a music class for everyone!

As a result of his or her musical education, a student will:

  • Identify the basic elements of music and the principles of composition that make up the unique characteristics of each musical work: rhythm, pitch, dynamics, timbre, and form.
  • Demonstrate the fundamental skills and general knowledge necessary to participate in music performing groups.
  • Identify musical styles from the major historical periods of music: Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, and 20th Century.
  • Develop cultural and aesthetic values through musical experiences.
