The Lower School music program is based on the Orff-Schulwerk approach of music and movement education. Students experience concepts and ideas through whole-body activities and have many opportunities to create in a cooperative setting. Along with singing and dancing, instrumental work includes various percussion and Orff instruments, recorders, ukuleles, and African marimbas.
Music is a strong component of the Middle School arts program. The curriculum focuses on developing group performance skills and individual expression and students can choose to be in choir, concert band, jazz band, or songwriting.
The Upper School music curriculum offers students a variety of opportunities from introductory to advanced vocal and instrumental classes, including AP music theory. Our award-winning choral and jazz ensembles, Colla Voce and Caravan, have an active performance schedule throughout the year at community events and music festivals.
