About the Role TEP is deeply committed to music instruction, as evidenced by the fact that TEP students learn music every day, across every grade level. As one of the three pillars of our program (Academics, Arts, and Athletics), TEP treats Music as a full-fledged academic subject, and not as an elective meant to supplement. TEP middle school students study general music in 5th grade; this includes singing instruction, basic instrumental instruction, rhythm and musical notation, and music history. Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades specialize in one of the following tracks: chorus, band, or modern ensembles. Students in each track spend their daily music period engaging in formal voice or instrumental instruction and practicing in their ensemble, while also continuing to develop their music literacy skills. TEP’s gold-rated music program emphasizes performance through regular ensemble concerts for the TEP community.
