Most states mandate minimum time for music. To check this out for your state, visit the Arts Education State Policy Database provided by the Arts Education Partnership: http://www.aep-arts.org/research-policy/state-policy-database/
Here’s what I found:
Indiana Administrative Code defines arts curriculum at each level with recommended minutes: 511 IAC 6.1-5-2.5 Elementary curriculum and recommended minutes.
“(m) The following time allocations are recommended for the curriculum listed in subsections (b) through (k):
Music: Grade Level 1, 2, and 3, Weekly Minimum, 60 minutes
Music: Grade Level 4, 5, and 6, Weekly Minimum, 90 minutes”

You may want to discuss your situation with your district supervisor. Good luck!
