BEGINNING BAND & BEGINNING STRINGS CLASSES
Our Beginning Band and Beginning Strings classes introduce students to note-reading, instrument care, as well as fundamentals unique to each instrument. Learning as a group can be fun and motivating for beginners as they learn from each other and experience the fun of simple, familiar songs as a class. Each beginning class meets twice weekly and typically performs a piece at the Christmas program and joins with the Concert Orchestra at the spring concert in May.
As students desire to become more accomplished musicians, they are encouraged to join the Concert Orchestra. Concert Orchestra meets twice weekly and performs at the all-school Christmas concert and presents a concert for the entire student body at the end of the school year. Orchestra members will be introduced to music that will challenge them in new ways with new notes, rhythms and styles. As students become more confident in their playing, they see how they can use music to glorify God and bring joy to their friends and family.
PRIVATE INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS
As a service to parents, we offer elective, fee-based (above tuition), individual instrumental and voice lessons. Lessons are offered before school, after school and during school hours. Our instrumental and voice instructors are dedicated and talented musicians who desire to instill a love of music in students. Many of our instructors are professional musicians who play or sing for professional organizations including military bands.
Options for weekly private lessons vary from year to year based on instructor availability. Options may include:
