Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. - Plato

Flaherty's Music program is full of very talented and lively performers in every way. I am Ms. Smith and this is my third year of being at Flaherty - I am so excited for all that we have going on. Each grade level is working hard to learn the general music skills needed to help them excel in and beyond elementary school.


In order to showcase what we do, each grade level does special performances each year. 

  • The first grade and kindergarten practice singing and rhythms with me and their classroom teachers prepare performances.
  • Our second graders have a performance of Seussical Junior in the early spring (near Dr. Seuss's birthday!)
  • The third grade has a well-practiced recorder concert in April before vacation.
  • In early December, our fourth graders are invited to perform at a Providence Bruins game
  • January and June bring joyful music by our fifth grade chorus (and our band/orchestra students) at our winter and spring concerts.

We are busy with music making and I am always amazed at their excitement and readiness to learn.
