COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Vocal Music Department believes that music plays a significant role in the education of young people and that it gives students a unique and memorable High School experience. Reflecting this belief, we have created a course which allows students to explore interests, to develop musical abilities, and to be prepared to go on to higher education and careers in music. Students will be exposed to a variety of styles and genres of music including Classical, Musical Theatre, World Music, Jazz, and Popular Music. This course will incorporate the following components:

  • Music reading skills and ear training
  • Music vocabulary
  • Healthy vocal techniques for all musical styles
  • Music history
  • Performance
  • Awareness of college and career opportunities in music
