DeSales Catholic School believes that all students have an innate musical ability and it is our responsibility to provide them with the opportunity to discover it. As our students move through music class they will face three different areas of study:
- Music Theory ~ Here, students learn the rudiments of how music works and explore basic music composition.
- Music appreciation ~ Student are exposed to and learn to enjoy a wide range of music genres and composers.
- Music performance ~ Students are given the opportunity to perform by singing and playing musical instruments, both in the classroom and in public performances. Middle school students have the opportunity to study guitar in class as well as experience diverse cultural understanding within music through a variety of instruments.
