Northwest is excited to offer several extracurricular classes for students in grades 3, 4, and 5. These are wonderful opportunities for your child to expand his/her music education, while also learning valuable social skills such as teamwork, discipline, and mutual respect. All students are welcome regardless of previous music experience or ability. Drumming and Modern Band ensembles are limited in size and participation may be decided by lottery.
