Music

Welcome to the IS 228 Music Department!

The Music Magnet program is a 3-year sequential program that prepares students for specialized high school auditions. No prior musical experience is necessary. Each student is provided his or her own instrument to use while attending IS 228. The magnet classes meet one period per day.

 

  • Beginners are Welcome!
 
  • Magnet class meets five days a week.
 
  • Students are given an extra instrument to leave at home for practicing, no need to carry them back and forth. 
 
  • Students with prior musical experience have the opportunity to  rehearse and perform with our advanced groups. 
 
  • Zero period class (Meets at 7AM) Offers small group instruction which focuses on teaching specific playing techniques associated with your child's particular instrument.
