Students at Siena can participate in a number of school ensembles and in a comprehensive and growing Instrumental Music Program. The program is coordinated by school staff and a team of Specialist Teachers. The program is extensive and offers a variety of lesson options that are scheduled during the school day on a rotating timetable to limit any disruption to daily class learning. A limited number of lessons are also available before and after school and at lunch breaks.
