Meet the instruments in May!

Each spring our instrumental music staff demonstrates musical instruments to our elementary students. The purpose of this demonstration is to acquaint our children with musical instruments and their sounds. This is the first step in recruiting students for beginning instrumental music lessons in our district.

On Monday, May 5, 7 p.m. at BCHS, third graders and their parents are invited to  listen to our teachers perform and talk about stringed instruments. Fourth grade students and their parents are invited to  listen to teachers play woodwind, brass and percussion instruments on Monday, May 12, 7 p.m. at BCHS.  Read the invitation from Music Supervisor David Norman [PDF].

Thank you for your attention.


The Bethlehem Central School District Music Education program provides a high-quality music experience to each child in our program. Music faculty and staff are committed to offering expert instructional experiences to enhance and educate our students’ musical education.
