Music Program

Martin Luther, credited as a genius and one of the most influential figures in the history of the Western world, praised music as one of highest of gifts given to man by God.  At Zion, we agree!

The inclusion of music into the curriculum has been shown in many academic studies to raise test scores in other disciplines, especially mathematics.   Zion Lutheran School of Kearney offers a variety of music opportunities for its students.  All students in the Kindergarten through eighth grades have music class three times a week.  All students also sing in the school choir.

Students in the 5th through 8th grades have the participate in the school band.  Students can learn the instrument of their choice and learn the basics of instrumental play.  Students who take all four years of band are well prepared for the different music programs offered in high school.

Our music instructor, Mrs. Elaine Arehart is a recent graduate of UNK and is especially skilled in band instruction.  We are blessed to have her.  See the faculty page to learn more about her!
