Our SFUSD music program provide instrumental music for fourth and fifth grade students. The music lessons in violin, flute, clarinet, and trumpet are taught in homogenous groups for beginning students. Lessons are given for 35 to 45 minutes once a week. This program is paid in part by a generous grant form the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors. Each year, Gordon Lau Elementary has about 100 to 120 students participate these lessons weekly. The students perform at major school events.
