• Fourth Grade Instrumental Exploratory
    An integral part of the Academy's curriculum is the Fourth Grade Instrumental Exploratory program. All Terramar fourth graders will have a full year of hands-on instrumental training with one quarter each on the clarinet, trumpet, flute and percussion.

    The students will learn musical notation and basic theory as they learn the basics of each instrument. At the end of the year, those students wishing to participate in band in fifth grade will have a specific instrument recommended to them based on their performance in the exploratory classes. This year-long process helps to assure the student's success in beginning band by combining a solid foundation of notation reading and matching the child with the instrument most suited to them.
