Because of Lakeview’s commitment to academic and personal growth of our students music is a priority in our program. Studies show that music education yields students with improved skills in other academic areas. Our music program teaches cultural history and appreciation while students learn vocal and instrumental music in a studio setting. Through all divisions, the music program develops our students’ abilities as well as their appreciation of music and gives them performance opportunities. Each year, music students of all divisions participate in various school-wide performances including Grandparents Day, Candlelight, and May Day.

Private lessons in beginning strings, beginning brass, and percussions can be scheduled at Lakeview on a first come first served basis. We are currently not accepting new students in piano.
