Patterson Music Program
Welcome to the Patterson Music Program webpage. Here you will find links to both of our music teachers, Mr. Peterson and Mrs. Mantie, as well as information about our music programing.
At Patterson, we are part of the MPS Innovative Music Schedule. This programming sees Patterson having two full time music teachers, and offers music to every child 60 minutes per week, plus an additional 30 minutes per week at the 4-6th grade level.
As part of the Innovative Schedule, our 4th-6th grade students elect to either participate in Orchestra or Concert Band, and also participate in a grade level chorus class. All classes occur during the school day, with the exception of our elective Advanced Orchestra and Concert Band. Advanced ensembles rehearse Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and participation is based upon skill and playing ability.
