BISD is proud to staff each of our 21 campuses with a highly qualified music specialist that follows a varied and rigorous curriculum for Pre-K through fifth grades. Lessons and activities include lots of singing, playing instruments, and creative movement. Students are also introduced to reading music notation and learning sight singing through the use of solfege.
Each year, all third graders are introduced to ballet with a field trip to see a performance of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. All fourth graders experience opera with an annual performance by the Fort Worth Children's Opera. Finally, all fifth graders experience the grandeur of a full orchestra with a field trip to hear the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra at the world-class Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth.
