We believe in music education for all

A key mission of the school in the past year has been to expand access to great music education through scholarships, expanded programming, and focused fundraising efforts. Currently, scholarships are available in partnership with One22. We can also refer families to Boundless. If you share our vision, consider supporting with a tax-deductible donation.

A Cappella Group

A Cappella illuminates the power of the voice. By emulating instruments such as bass, guitar, piano, and drums, we create the sound of a full band. Students will train their ears to sing in harmony, learn through sight reading, become skilled beat-boxers, and create their own arrangements. Songs are selected and arranged by the instructor and the group, exploring genres such as pop, doo-wop, and classic rock. Led by Melissa Elliott.

 

A placement audition is held before the first rehearsal to place singers in vocal parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass, beat boxer, etc.) and auditions for individual solos are held throughout the rehearsal season.

Ukulele Group

What better instrument to learn how to play music with other people than ukulele? It is engaging, portable, fairly inexpensive, great for playing popular music, and fun to sing along with! It's also a great starting point for learning other stringed instruments. Students will develop their musicianship skills together, working on chords and strumming, learning songs and the fundamentals of how to play together as a group. Two sections are offered: one for elementary age, and another just for tweens/teens. Taught with love by Susan Jones.
