Music Island and Mr. Barnes

Here on Music Island we build community, cooperation, and contribution through the study of Music fundamentals.
Together we MOVE AND DANCE, SING, PLAY INSTRUMENTS, EXPLORE THE WORLD AROUND US, PERFORM AND HAVE FUN!!!
All our students learn world music using percussion instruments while our third, fourth, and fifth grade students learn to play the recorder. Our Music Island students learn the Island Way of Kindness, Respect, and Participation.
