Music Department

  • The mission of the Norristown Area School District Music Department is to encourage and facilitate the study, creation, and performance of music by providing all students the opportunity to learn, share, and participate in culturally and globally diverse musical experiences.

    Recognized by the National Association for Music Merchants (NAMM) as a best community for music education, the Norristown Area School District provides numerous music opportunities for students from Kindergarten through high school. In accordance with the State and National Music Standards, students benefit from a robust music program which allows opportunities for practice and performance. Beginning in 3rd grade, students may choose to receive instrumental music lessons. Various performance ensembles throughout the district include band, choir, and orchestra. Students work together using technology to enhance and hone their skills. Our district encourages participation in music activities and regularly support students performing throughout the community and on the national stage.
