The Upper School Music curriculum builds and expands on the strong foundational skills that students develop in Middle School. By learning to play the ukulele, students gain an understanding of music that allows them to recognize, melody, theme, and structure. Students explore arrangement and composing through the use of glockenspiels, xylophones, and percussion instruments. As more age-appropriate skills are introduced, care is taken to make sure that new students, whose former music experience might be limited, are assisted and prepared to move forward. From there, students are able to explore more advanced courses that explore, analyze, and perform sophisticated musical pieces.
