K.B. Polk Music engages students in meaningful experiences of quality music education and performance opportunities.
At K.B. Polk, CHOIR bridges cultures, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds to instill passion, excellence, and a sense of community and inclusiveness in its singers. Students learn proper singing and vocal technique, the basics of sight reading and music theory, and the importance of working together in a collaborative group.
Students are able to participate in DISD’s Music Memory Contest in the spring.
PIANO at Polk emphasizes correct playing habits and note reading through interval recognition. Each student is provided with a solid foundation in music theory. Each student enjoys playing entertaining pieces from the very first day of piano in our brand new piano lab.
