Students in the elementary school have music classes twice a week. Depending on their grade, students may learn to play various instruments, how to read music, and sing different songs. There are also units on acting and music from many cultures. Grades 4 and 5 may learn to play the ukulele. There are many after school activities in music.
Students also perform in two concerts a year: Winter Concert (Snow Show) in December and International Day in April. Performances may include a variety of singing, instrument playing and dancing.
All students in grades 1 - 10 came together to sing at the end of the Winter Concert. Students learned the verses to “Oh, Christmas Tree” in Latvian, Russian, German, French and English.

Students usually rehearse twice a week in the winter season as part of the after school activities program. Students may also be part of the backstage crew.
