Choir helps students feel a part of the school and the community. Singing reduces stress, boost confidence, and help with communication skills. Choir students sing at a variety of community events. Students may take choir for 1 semester or all year.


This course is designed to help students develop basic piano playing skills, or expand on their existing skills. Time in class will be spent both on and off the keyboards. While playing, students will work individually and in a class setting. There will be time spent on musical notation, theory, and composition.  Piano is a semester long course.
