Music

The Middle School Band class is a year-long elective. All students perform with the Concert Band and have the option of participating in the Jazz Workshop Band and Varsity Pep Band (which performs at HS home football games). Full-band rehearsals and weekly semi-private instrumental lessons are offered to anyone desiring to learn – no previous experience is necessary! Instruction is available for wind instruments (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, etc.) and percussion. Though the band does not regularly use string players, pianists, guitarists, and set drummers, students already proficient on these instruments are encouraged to apply their musical skills to learning a band instrument in order to join the fun.  Both the Concert and Jazz bands perform annually in Old Town at Christmas, in the ACSI Band & Orchestra Festival in spring, and in the “Music Under the Stars” event. They also go on tour every year, performing at a school or festival, attending a professional music/stage performance, and enjoying a day at Disneyland.

Theater

The Theater program introduces Middle School students to the theater arts. This performance-based course focuses on the fundamentals of drama, improvisation, and short scene work. Students even have a chance to write their own scenes and perform them for their final project; they also can audition for the Middle School play in the spring.
