Music

Greetings and welcome to the Brewster Central Schools Music Department. On this site you can find a wide range of information regarding what’s happening in Music and the Performing Arts in general. Everything from how to better practice your instrument to when the next concert is and much more can be found here.

Here in Brewster, we are very proud of our performing arts program. Approximately 2900 students in grades K-9 are receiving weekly classroom music instruction during the school day. They are being educated in various aspects of music education such as notation, pitch, rhythm, instrument recognition, historical and ethnic effects on music and evaluation of the many styles of music which exist throughout history. In addition, more than 1,000 students are experiencing the joys of creating music by participating in one or more of our many performing ensembles. These include choirs beginning in grade three, string and band instruments beginning and grade four and outstanding theater presentations at the middle school and high school.

Please utilize this website. There are useful links regarding instrumental technique, music performance examples among other things. Information on each ensemble, curriculum and schedules can also be easily accessed. We feel this has potential to become an amazing 24 hour resource for students and parents to take an active roll in their music education.
