As in other curricular areas, the music program is experiential. At its basis is the Orff-Schulwerk process, which philosophically parallels language development. Students learn by hearing and making music first, then by reading and writing it later.

General music and chorus in the Upper and Middle Schools emphasize higher-level thinking skills, learning the elements of music, and the manipulation of these elements into student-created musical experiences. Middle and Upper School Bands and Middle and Upper School Chorus are further opportunities for performance that instill confidence, self-discipline, and courage as well as improved musicianship.
