"Music has the power of producing a certain effect on the moral character of the soul, and if it has the power to do this, it is clear that the young must be directed to music and educated in it." (Aristotle).

Lower School

Kindergarten through Second Grade students concentrate on rhythm studies, note values, musical notation, pitch, and learning the musical staff.

In Third Grade, students begin our strings program, choosing between violin, viola, and cello. This program began in Fall 2021 and is currently offered in Third Grade and beyond. 

In Fifth and Sixth Grade, we also offer chorale, where music theory continues with key signatures, ear training, and solfège. Students are also introduced to two, three, and four-part harmonies in preparation for chorale groups in middle school.


Middle & Upper School

Students in Seventh and Eighth Grade continue in Chorale, building on the music fundamentals they have previously learned. During these years, we focus primarily on proper singing posture, breathing exercises and techniques, proper use of the diaphragm for vocal projection, and diction. Our repertoire is mostly composed of sacred, classical, and Latin selections.
