Merit MUSIC program AT BURLEY
The benefits of music education are immeasurable. Music programming is an essential part of students’ social, cognitive, artistic, and even mathematical development. Every day Burley students experience an award winning and unique curriculum specifically designed to educate the whole child - the musical education provided by the Merit School of Music is an integral part of this experience. Students begin in their early years exploring the fundamentals of music. They build on that experience in either choir or band in their upper years and graduate from Burley with a robust foundation in music fundamentals and all of the benefits that come from musical study. We can’t wait to share students’ musical learning with you at assemblies and performances later this year.
