Music

In the elementary grades, students begin by learning to read music, sing together, and to make musical instruments.

In fourth grade students learn to play the recorder, both individually and as a group.

In fifth through eighth grades, the School offers individual instrumental instruction to all interested students under the direction of Jessica Friedman, with no limit to musical instrument.  The students perform as soloists, duets, quartets, and ensemble two times per year in our Holiday and Spring Concerts.  Each year, students create a group ensemble that combines vocals and musical instruments.  In 2015, students created a big band style Jazz group.  In 2016, students shifted directions and created a rock group.  Instruction is focused on both individual and group musical productions.

Several students participate in the annual statewide music festival.
