Our music classes in grades K-4 teach music appreciation, unison singing, rhythm studies, and introductory music theory, among other things.  These classes are taught by the individual classroom teachers.

Music classes in 5th-8th grades are taught by our kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Rachel Uhlhorn. These classes meet in our church Music Room, and draw on and expand upon the music basics learned in the earlier grades.

Other Music Opportunities

Manitowoc Lutheran Middle School Band
Individual instrument instruction is available for children in grades 5-8 through Manitowoc Lutheran High School's (MLHS) Middle School Band program. Individual lessons are held at Immanuel once a week during the school day, and are taught by Mrs. Renee Schmill, director of MLHS's Middle School Band program. Our band students, as well as students from other area Lutheran grade schools, are also invited to be a member of one of two bands that meet for rehearsal on Saturday mornings at MLHS: Beginner Band and Concert Winds. These bands perform in two concerts each school year.

Individual Piano and Strings Lessons
Individual piano and violin lessons are also available during the school day at Immanuel. Two experienced piano teachers, Mrs. Ardis Haag and Mrs. Jane Lepich, and an experienced strings teacher, Mrs. Jen Knutson, offer once-a-week, 30 minute lessons for your child in one of the music rooms at our facilities. A lesson schedule for all interested students is created in consultation with the classroom teachers in order to fit well with each teacher's classroom schedule.

To obtain contact information for Mrs. Haag, Mrs. Lepich, or Mrs. Knutson, please contact your classroom teacher or Mr. Wilson, our principal.
