St. John students participate in vocal and instrument performance groups and also study music in a more typical classroom setting. Using curriculum tailored to fit the age of each class, students study elements of music history and appreciation as well as music theory. Through participation at concerts, worship services, community events, and festivals, choirs and bands develop performance abilities and also give thanks and praise to God.
Choirs: St. John choirs strive to give glory to God through excellent singing. Students examine good vocal techniques while addressing rhythm, harmony, and other basic musical elements. Music classes are part of the regular curriculum for Kindergarten to 8th grade.
Band: Students in 5th grade or older may join Beginning Band, and those in 6th grade or older who have had at least one year’s experience may join the Advanced Band. Children have the opportunity to select from a variety of instruments.
