Personal expression, creative thinking, imaginative communication, and intellectual curiosity are all outcomes leading students to experience a greater appreciation of God’s majestic creation.

By creating projects, critical thinking and organizational skills will be developed.

Music

Choir

Students learn and perform beginning, intermediate and some advanced levels of choral literature from selected musical genres and eras. Learning basic music theory and performance, as well as exploring music history and creating appreciation from diverse cultures and backgrounds, students will gain a valuable understanding of how music is used to worship our Creator.

Performing at various venues in and outside the school community during the school year provide our students the opportunity to glorify God and is truly a great way to live out the school’s mission and vision.

Students in this course learn and perform beginning, intermediate and some advanced levels of choral literature from selected musical genres and eras. Students learn basic music theory and performance, as well as exploring music history and creating an environment of music appreciation from diverse cultures and backgrounds. The course is divided into one semester of theory and one semester of music history / appreciation. Both semesters include 2 -3 performances with one performance including costuming and choreography.

In addition, singers will participate in the annual ACSI Musicale Choral Festival in Pasadena, California, learning the required pieces for the Mass Choir and individual pieces for adjudication.

Guitar

GuitarLearning and mastering classical or acoustic guitar inspires students to worship the Lord. Introductory and advanced classes introduce students to the world of reading guitar music.

The guitar 1 course takes the student who knows very little about music and who doesn't know how to play the guitar to become a guitarist who can perform in a variety of styles and play music in a worship setting.

Emphasis is placed on building skills and techniques. The student will learn a great deal of music theory and be exposed to a variety of guitar styles. Students must provide their own acoustic guitar (steel string or classical).
