Individual and collective creativity are the focus of the music program. Combining study in content-based (music theory, ear training, solfege, music analysis) and performance-based (improvisation, technique, expression) areas, vocalists and instrumentalists collaborate with each other to create original compositions and arrangements in a variety of styles. Students perform in small ensembles throughout the year. Additionally, students develop skills in reading music for his or her voice or instrument, and engage in interdisciplinary collaborations. Music students receive study and training to better prepare them for post-secondary music study and/or a career in the music industry.
