The music department is devoted to the study of music, vocal and instrumental techniques and ensemble skills. Students will be exposed to a variety of music litearture, including that of different styles and cultures.

Above all, music does not only exert cultural influence and provide enjoyment and recreation, but above all, it is a wonderful medium whereby man can praise and glorify his God. Repeatedly, scripture calls upon us to sing to the Lord: "Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp." (Psalm 147:7) The Christian teacher has many opportunities to develop this gift of music in the lives of children and direct this gift into God-pleasing channels.
