Basic musical theory will be taught in Grades 5 and 6, and instrumental music is continued with the introduction of the guitar. A junior choir, intermediate choir and a guitar ensemble are formed for Grade 5 and 6 students in the fall when interest is expressed. In Grade 7 and 8, music theory, composition and appreciation are enhanced, and students choose instruments in the different woodwind, brass and percussion sections.
Music will be sure to play an important role in your child’s life. A voluntary after-school concert band is offered for those who wish to further pursue their proficiency. Every year, the various groups, ensembles, and classes stage a concert as part of the May Festival Of The Arts.
