Through our music program students learn how to read music, understand music terminology and structure, and distinguish between different sounds, cultures of music and instrument families. Through the use of classroom instruments and singing, students develop their own personal musical abilities. In the older grade, music history and composers are studied.
Band is offered after school once a week for students in grades 4-8 with a focus on beginning brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments.
Choir is offered to students wishing to help lead worship during weekly All School Masses. The choir is featured on special occasions such as the parish Children’s Mass on Christmas Eve, May Crowning, 8th Grade Graduation, and even the Spring Concert!
The music curriculum is enhanced by several musical performances each year, including a Grandparents Day program, a Christmas program, and an annual spring musical.
