Music at the Academy

Students who participate fully in evening music ensembles are eligible for one-on-one or small group lessons. During the day, students can take classes to focus on their instruments or singing (Music Performance), study music theory (AP Music Theory and IB Music HL and SL), or learn about songwriting or music technology. Our after-school music program gives students more time to practice (as an alternative to after-school athletics), and even participate in the winter musical's pit band. There are also numerous ensembles available to students in the evenings; see below for a full list. School-wide Morning Meetings give students the opportunity to perform for the school in small groups or as a solo performer.
