The music department is going to be presenting information in order to get your child involved in instrumental music.  This event will be in the High School Auditorium on Thursday Evening, June 2 at 7:00pm.   

The teachers of the music department will have an overview of the program and the steps you need to take to get your child enrolled for 2022-2023 and to acquire an instrument.  We will have a rep from Music and Arts to discuss rental procedures.  We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

This event is open to anyone who is interested in having their child learn an instrument and it is never too late to start! We will be also recording the presentation and will make it available to view online if you cannot attend.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Andrew Veiss at

Hello Parents,

As the year comes to an end it is time to think about your child's involvement in the music program at Grant School.  All incoming 5th and 6th grade families are asked to fill out a form to let us know their interest in involvement for the 2022-2023 school year.  We encourage all families to fill this out to ensure your child's schedule at Grant School can be set before the start of the fall.  Attached is the letter which will have all the information you need.  If you have any questions about the program please reach out to the music department team at Grant School.

The form to be filled out is electronic in the letter and due June 16th, 2022.

Thank you,

Grant School Music Department.
