Prerequisite: Prior experience with an orchestral instrument
This whole-year subject accompanied with Kairos all year provides students with a balanced, comprehensive study of music through the ensemble environment. Ensemble and solo activities are designed to develop elements of musicianship including, but are not limited to: tone production, technical skills, intonation, music reading skills, listening skills, analyzing music, and studying historically significant styles of literature. A limited number of public performances may serve as a culmination of daily rehearsal and music goals. Students must participate in performance opportunities, outside of the school day, that support and extend the learning in the classroom.
