“Effective education is based on moderating successful experiences within a high-functioning, aspiring, and nurturing community. Every child has limitless possibilities and the ability to strive for excellence.”
Elementary Programs is our Flagship Offering and the stepping stone towards musical proficiency and mastery later on. We begin with nurturing the whole person: each student in Sistema Tulsa benefits from a rich music curriculum and teachers that nurture a caring, cooperative and joyful community.
First year students begin with a Fundamentals Curriculum which prepares them to succeed in a Strings, Woodwind or Brass instrument the following year. The beginning curriculum is carefully curated to meet the needs of our community. Students sing and dance together, play ukuleles, drums, and begin reading music, thus developing a basic language of musical communication and fine technical motor skills.
Students who already have instrumental skills because they have learned at school or have taken private lessons, we can place them within an existing ensemble group via audition. Contact us for more details on this process.
Students meet twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday from 4-5 p.m. at the Boston Avenue hub site. Other musical electives are available to them if they wish to spend more time learning with us. These offerings are projected to include a chorus, piano lab, guitar, or percussion training. All instruction will be conducted in person.
All students are welcome to Sistema Tulsa's hub site regardless of where they attend school.
Tisdale program is a "satellite" and will be at the school-site with opportunities to have monthly rehearsals at the hub site.
Mayo program is an "extension" meaning that students can ride a bus to the hub site. In the future, an in-school satellite is being planned.
