Creative Arts

Music & Band

As an integral part of the curriculum, music is introduced through the general music curriculum beginning in kindergarten and continuing through grade 9. Music history and theory are supplemented by work with Orff instruments and vocal training. In middle school, students have the opportunity to participate in the instrumental music program, offering students the opportunity to choose woodwind, brass or percussion instruments and allowing them to increase their musicianship through participation in ensemble performances on and off campus. These musical opportunities continue through the upper school years.
