Music Education


Music specialist Kristen Birley (a Selkirk Montessori graduate!) takes grade 1-3 students for a comprehensive music program. She also leads the junior and senior choirs, as well as the Musical Theatre club.  Each year, Kristen mounts two musical theatre productions, one for grades 1-3 and another for grades 4-8.

In grades 4 and 5, music specialist Eli Bender teaches the students a variety of percussion instruments, recorders and guitars. Eli also teaches band for students in grades 6-8, and offers two Strings Clubs this year.

Katie Wilton teaches music to our Kindergarten/Preschool students.  They participate in musical celebrations in their classrooms, during assemblies and at a year-end concert in June.

All elementary and middle school students take part in assemblies, concerts and performances throughout the year.
