Students are encouraged to observe, explore, create, and perform as they learn the language of music.
Wyndcroft strives to offer experiences that encourage students to be engaged with their school environment, develop a positive attitude, and make healthy choices. Music is one program that addresses multiple learning styles, meets individual needs, and engages students in meaningful activities.
Music Class - A designated Music class is included in the curriculum for all students at Wyndcroft from Early Childhood through 8th Grade.
Instrumental Music - Beginning in 3rd Grade, students are given the opportunity to study a variety of instruments through both individual and group instruction. After one year of lessons, students are invited to participate in our Junior Ensemble and then after two years, the Wynd and String Ensemble.
Vocal Music - Beginning in 5th Grade, the vocal music program expands to include Upper School Chorus. Those who wish to pursue more challenging vocals can participate in Select Chorus, our small group vocal ensemble.
