Music

The Shared Music Program

The larger number of students involved in a shared music program enables us to offer a wide choice of high quality courses. In middle school not only do we have three types of music classes (band, strings and chorus), but also three different levels of proficiency within the instrument classes. In High School we can offer an even wider selection of courses for students to choose from. Music enables communication between all cultures, it is the universal language and working together in band, orchestra or choir builds teamwork and camaraderie between the students of the two schools. Our strong focus on performance means that our music curriculum stimulates the imagination of our students, helps build their confidence and improve their communication skills. It also encourages students to become more disciplined and to take responsibility as they learn how improving individual skills enhances the group as a whole.
