For the Love of Music

Students interested in music may apply any of the music courses to their fine art requirements such as Orchestra, Band, Jazz Band, Chorale, Advanced Chorale. Music courses are also taught by practicing musicians who aim to provide students with a source of enjoyment and inspiration. At Country Day, we believe strongly that Music provides students the opportunity to experience personal growth as well as the satisfaction derived from cooperative effort.

    The lower school music curriculum is based on the Orff-Schulwerk philosophy that builds music concepts and skills while involving children in movement, speech, rhythm, singing, playing instruments, and improvisation. We offer a full program of choral and instrumental music, including Little Group, band, orchestra, and Orff ensemble.
