Instrumental Lessons Enhance Music Program
Posted on 03/08/2023

The MOBOCES music program has resumed daily instrumental lessons this school year, allowing middle and high school students to try out a variety of instruments and practice reading, composing and playing music.

Music lessons have not only enhanced the curriculum, but it has helped engage more students in school, music teacher Jack Chesebro said.

“It has provided students with a lot of opportunities for hands-on learning, which we really value,” he said. “Having that hands-on opportunity in the day is just something that makes them excited about school.”

MOBOCES does not have a traditional band or orchestra program, but students have opportunities to perform at the annual student talent show and at other times throughout the year. Although individual lessons occur at higher grade levels, all K-12 full-day students use instruments through our daily general music program.
