• Performance Ensembles in Elementary Schools

    The primary focus of the Fort Bend ISD Elementary Music program is teaching children the arts through music. Student performances are an appropriate outcome of this training. Grade level programs demonstrate classroom learning. In addition to grade level programs, elementary schools have a campus-wide choir and some have other musical ensembles for students in the upper grade levels. These groups usually meet weekly outside the regular school day and perform at various school and community functions, as well as business locations, throughout the school year. The James Neill Elementary Rockin' Longhorn Percussion Ensemble was invited to perform at the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) Convention in San Antonio in 2024, and the Fort Bend ISD Elementary Honor Choir was invited to perform at the TMEA Convention in 2023. Check with your campus music teacher about opportunities at your school.

    Elementary Honor Choir

    The Fort Bend ISD Elementary Honor Choir is a select music ensemble composed of auditioned 5th grade singers from across the district. They rehearse and present a performance early in the spring semester. Auditions for this group are by invitation of the campus music specialist and take place in early fall semester of each year. Please visit the Fine Arts Calendar for Performance Dates.

    Elementary Music Curriculum

    Written by our own leading music specialists, the goal of the FBISD Elementary Music Curriculum is sequential musical learning, which develops an appreciation for the joy of music making as well an understanding of the culture and fine arts from a variety of locations and historical periods. The musical skills taught in the classroom create opportunities for performing, reading, writing and creating music.
