Music instruction is aligned to the Iowa Fine Arts Standards which are directly aligned to the National Core Arts Standards.  These standards revolve around four areas of instruction (creating, performing, responding, and connecting).  All standards are taught to each student in each grade level or course; however, the music curriculum team has chosen priority standards that will be focused on and assessed more often to ensure readiness for the next level and college or career.   

Music Mission Statement

The mission of the Oskaloosa music department is to give all students the opportunity to develop their potential and self expression in music, both individually and as a group.  Students will have the opportunity to develop lifelong skills and appreciation for music.
