    Bainville Public School Music Program

    David Glen Wheeler:  K-12 Director

    Welcome to the Bainville Public School Music Program website.  The program consists of general music for grades K-3, Band for grades 4-6, 7-12 Band, and 7-12 Choir.  Infused with each program is a Modern Band program in which students learn to play ukulele, guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and electronic music allowing them to create music within the genres they enjoy.  Another part of Modern Band is the after school program Popular Music Rocks where we focus on principles from Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organzation that works to bring relevant music to diversified student bodies.

    On this site, you will find information about the program, course expectations, and learning resources.  More information will be forth coming as the website is developed.
