The BFA music program offers a variety of programs to showcase each student’s creativity and talent.  As part of BFA’s focus on the arts, each year every grade has the opportunity to participate in a musical performance in front of a live audience.

K-5 Music

Full day kindergarten through fifth grade has music five times a month. Students explore music through singing, dancing and playing.

Sometime during the year, each grade will perform in a musical. Students can find more information on their grade level performances and practice their music on the BFA music site.
