Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

The Grand Haven Music Teachers are committed to providing a quality music education for all students in our classroom. We recognize that this year will look different, but we are committed to providing your students opportunities to engage in music and continue to provide the social-emotional learning and connectivity that so many of our students seek from their school music community.


During this difficult and unprecedented time, the mental health of our students remains our top priority. Music education can have positive effects on a student’s mental health. With the changes that are impacting our traditional school environments, music education is more critical than ever before to the ongoing development and health of our students. Music has long been reported to contribute to the positive social and emotional growth of students. Participating in music classes allows them the stability of being in a peer group, enabling them the opportunity to feel accepted by others. Additional benefits to music instruction include maintaining focus, recognizing individual artistic ability, relating with others, and being a part of a team. Music instruction is uniquely positioned to scaffold this social emotional learning for our students.


Regardless of COVID-19 restrictions, the music staff is committed to providing our students a meaningful and standard-based music education. The music staff realizes that students enroll in a performing arts class out of a desire to play an instrument or sing. In that spirit, our lessons will incorporate authentic performance as much and as safely as possible while exploring other aspects of our Michigan Music Standards. Our performances will look much different than in the past but will still be meaningful to student development.
