    The Lawrence Township Public Schools are proud to announce that we have once again been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education by NAMM!  Here at LIS, students have multiple opportunities to participate in the music program.  All students receive a general music class for one marking period as part of their education.  In addition to this, students may choose to participate in their grade level chorus or sign up to take an orchestra or band instrument in the fall of 4th grade.   We also have advanced groups that students may enter through audition! Pitch Black is our advanced vocal group, the LIS Jazz Band is for band and rhythm instruments, and Chamber Strings is for our string players!  Students may also participate in their grade level handchime ensembles.  The handchime participants are chosen through a lottery system in early fall.  Much of the information you may be looking for can be found on this website, but if you still have questions, please look at the teacher responsibilities below to contact the correct music teacher!

    We look forward to working with you!
