The vocal and instrumental music departments are committed to the development of each individual student in the areas of music theory and appreciation, worship, and performance. Our classes are designed to encourage exploration and participation in each of these areas, using a variety of activities. Each year, the music department prepares programs where the students have an opportunity to perform for family and friends and to showcase the talents God has given them. These performances are an integral part of each students music education. In 4th grade, all students learn how to play the recorder. This exciting adventure will begin in the first semester reinforcing music theory; then culminating with performing on the instrument for the second semester. An extracurricular honors choir is available for all interested 5th - 6th grade elementary students. In the spring, 4th-8th grade students have the opportunity to participate in the ACSI Music Festival. Adjudication is available for piano, vocal, and instrumental students. Solos, ensembles, Honors Choir and 6th grade band will represent our school at this off-site event. Emphasis is placed on sharing God-given abilities rather than competing against others. Band students (5th-6th grade) rehearse outside school hours from 8-8:45 a.m. twice weekly.
The Junior High music department participates in ASCI competitions as well as various choir contests and events. Students in Junior High may take courses in Band, Choir, Worship Team, and Advanced Worship Team.
The High School music department is an active member of Missouri State High School Activities Association as well as Crossroads Conference. Students involved in the High School music department may take courses in Symphonic Orchestra, High School Choir, Concert Chorale, Junior/Senior Ensemble, and Introductory/Intermediate Worship.
