The main goal of the Cedar Springs Elementary Music program is to progressively educate students to become confident and independent musicians. The elementary music curriculum provides opportunities to explore sound through singing, moving, listening, and playing instruments.
Cedar Springs Instrumental Music program has seen great growth and development throughout the years. The Cedar Springs Band program has a rich history of excellence and tradition, including hosting the longest running marching band invitational in the state of Michigan. We offer band in grades six through twelve in many varieties including concert band, solo and ensemble, jazz band, marching band, and pep band. The opportunities to participate in band will help shape our students into positive, productive citizens in our ever-changing world. Our goal is to teach students the importance of discipline, perseverance, teamwork, and the elements of life that will make them successful in the future.
The high school vocal music department builds upon those standards and provides its members with many outstanding opportunities to grow and excel in their musical development. Students produce a Madrigal dinner in the fall with singing, drama, dancing, and a bell choir. They also participate in the Michigan School Vocal Music Association (MSVMA) choral festival and produce a full spring concert. Students are also encouraged to participate in the MSVMA Honors Choir and the Solo and Ensemble Festival.
