Our Programs


MUSE is happy to be entering its 8th year at Columbine, a bilingual elementary in Boulder. The program has grown to include small group instruction for all students on the following instruments:

  • Flute

  • Violin

  • Cello

  • Guitar

  • Clarinet

  • Saxophone

  • Trumpet

  • Recorder

We have 9 teachers, all of whom are professional musicians. We are happy to report that we have a second program in its fourth year at University Hill, another bilingual elementary in Boulder. Each program runs two days a week for two hours each day (about five and a half total hours per week). Every student studies an instrument in a small class with a 6 to 1 student/teacher ratio, and the whole community comes together for choir after instrumental classes. Our choir sings in several languages, with an emphasis on Spanish. Students work on singing in two-part harmonies and accompanying the choir on percussion and various other instruments.
