Soar Music Programs for Third and Fourth Grade Students

SOAR is a place to empower people to reach their fullest potential in the creative arts and is a training ground to help people grow, discover and fulfill their unique creative purpose. Their mission is to guide and develop the gifts of students through skilled training and one-to-one encouragement with highly trained professionals with either a bachelor’s degree or years of experience in their field.


In this exciting ensemble, students will experience playing multiple different percussion instruments. This class can take on different forms, from organized jam sessions to learning to lock in a groove and learning to play by ear.
