Music at Stephen Olney Elementary is jam-packed. As pre-kindergarten students, children are encouraged to sing along, associate routines with music, and dance to the beat. That doesn’t change as they progress through their musical education at our school, but their knowledge of how to create music and its possibilities does – students learn to hold a tune, harmonize with their classmates, perform for an audience for the first time, and see the tremendous value of music as a shared experience.

As they advance through Stephen Olney, children start to see their own potential and talents, and their confidence is built to share those musical gifts with others. Music theory, concepts, and the structure of a song is taught to our students, who take that knowledge and run with it – or dance with it, or sing about it, or perform it.
