Overview of Program 

    General Music programs at the secondary school level in Dallas ISD provide students with a well-rounded overview of musical concepts, history, and genres. Students participate in music appreciation, learn basic music theory and musicianship, and even have opportunities to participate in actual performances. These classes provide students with foundational skills that often lead to continued studies in other more advanced musical classes.
