SALSA Band Program Information

SALSA (Sheboygan Area Lutheran Schools Association) band is open to all 5th to 8th grade students that attend the 5 area Lutheran School and St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Plymouth.  Learning to play a musical instrument is a valuable experience for your children. Through it they will enjoy working with other children; they will come to appreciate good music through familiarity with specific compositions; they will receive enjoyment and a sense of satisfaction by being a member of a musical group.

Bethlehem Music and Choir

Bethlehem Lutheran School has a proud music tradition.  Students sing in two choirs (Cherub-5K to 3rd & Jubliate-4th to 8th).  These students sing at church services as well as National Lutheran Schools Week.  Some students also participate in the SALSA Music Festival in March where they compete in solo and ensemble groups.

There is also music class for grades 1st to 8th in which students learn general music knowledge.  As a prelude to instrumental lessons, the recorder is introduced to all students in grade 4 as part of our classroom music program.
