The Arts
The Middle School music program focuses on creative self-expression, learning essential technique, and developing ensemble skills. Like the Visual Arts program, the music program emphasizes a supportive and non-competitive environment to enhance the students’ confidence in their abilities and to foster an atmosphere of trust, mutual respect, and cooperation. Our elective offerings include three year-long ensemble classes (Orchestra, Jazz Band and Vocal Ensemble) and trimester-long electives in digital music and songwriting, as well as After School classes such as Rock Band. There is also a high degree of collaboration with the performing arts department, including a full-scale musical theatre production in the spring.
