Music

The music department offers courses designed to contribute to the musical and aesthetic education of students with a wide variety of abilities and interests. The program provides opportunities to increase proficiency with a musical instrument or voice, to study music theory, or to experience music as a form of expression. In addition to courses that may be scheduled during the school day, additional opportunities are provided through jazz ensembles, Broadway choir, chamber choir, and pep band. The instrumental program and the vocal program are designed to help a student develop the musical skills essential for quality performance in musical organizations. Each of the courses provides experience with a variety of musical styles that encourage a student to appreciate music as a vehicle for expression. In addition, through rehearsals and concerts, a student is able to recognize the value of a disciplined collaboration and to take pleasure from the resulting harmony. 

All courses count (2.0 or 4.0) towards the Fine & Performing Art Requirement for graduation.
