High Plains Music Program

All students at High Plains take part in music classes.  Lessons are based on the Colorado State Music Standards for kindergarten through fifth grades.  Students learn about the basic elements of music and how to apply those elements.  Students of all grade levels learn how to read and write music, perform as a group, sing, music history, music technology, and important musical composers.  Each grade-level performs a musical program every year.  The shows vary each year and teach different musical genres, styles and have an academic connection.  Students also learn to play instruments.  Younger students play percussion instruments (drums, xylophones, boomwhackers, etc.) while older students learn to play recorders and can-joes.  This is an excellent way to incorporate all of our music standards in a very enjoyable manner.

Extra-Curricular Music Classes

High Plains students have several options for additional music studies. Students K-2 are invited to take part in Music Club.  The High Plains Choir is open to students in grades 3-5.  The Band is for students in fourth and fifth grades.  Additional information on each of these classes can be found on the Activities & Clubs page. 

The Cherry Creek School District also offers an Orchestra class for students in third grade and higher, as well as a Percussion class for students in 4th and 5th grades.  Both of these classes are held at Campus Middle School on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Please contact Mrs. Merrihew for additional information at
