Music - Upper School
Our program offers students opportunities to develop the skills and dispositions of musicians: communication, discipline, creativity, hard work, flexibility, teamwork, and performance skills. Students choose from a variety of courses with emphasis on style, music fundamentals, theory, performance techniques, history and listening concepts.
Students in performing groups learn to set high standards and to be cooperative and supportive of each other. Multiple studies link music study to academic achievement and attribute music to being the key to opening up pathways to creative thinking. The goal of the music program is to enable students to find their own personal musical expression and to set up a foundation for a lifetime of musical enjoyment, whether as a performer or as an educated audience member.
