Music classes at St. Agatha Academy are designed to promote music literacy and music appreciation. While we do not have a formal choir, students spend the entire fall semester working on choral music techniques. This culminates in an evening Christmas concert which truly celebrates the birth of Christ.
Students who are looking for further opportunities in vocal music can participate in vocal festivals and prepare solos for contest upon request. Students also participate in small groups that lead the sung liturgy at Mass at least once each year. Several of our students have gone on to contribute to their high school choir programs, even representing their high school at all-state events.
Spring general music classes focus on music theory, instrumental music, or music appreciation, depending on the grade level. Check out our grade-specific articles to see what each class is learning.
St. Agatha Academy has two band classes that meet on alternating days. Band students also have enrichment opportunities such as honor bands, camps, and solo contest that are available upon request. Many of our instrumental students have also gone on to shine in their high school band programs, often assuming leadership positions.
Whether you prefer to sing, play, or just listen to music, there are many ways to enjoy it at St. Agatha Academy!
