Music

Our primary music program offers children the opportunity to explore and learn elements of music including melody, rhythm, tempo and dynamics through singing and playing a variety of pitched and unpitched rhythm instruments. Students create their own melodies and lyrics in community with each other and with guidance from their music teacher. Children are able to express themselves through song and dance both in the classroom and through public performance for family and friends.

Grade 3-7 musicians are invited on a rich, exciting and vibrant journey that seeks to nurture a life-long love and appreciation for music. While music education develops the whole child, it essentially connects us to each other and to the heart of God. It is our desire to help each student reach their full potential as musicians by learning musical skills and techniques.

Our grade 3-7 musicians participate in marimba, ukulele, bucket drumming, recorder, choir and band classes. Students have the option to participate in a variety of extra curricular activities including grade 4–7 Chapel Band, grade 4–7 Christmas Event Choir, grade 6 & 7 Jazz Band and grade 7 marimba ensemble. Every two years we present either Handel’s Easter Messiah or Handel’s Christmas Messiah with a variety of music presentations and musicals during the in-between years.

SCStrings

SCStrings is a unique, extracurricular music program offered to SCS students that starts with the basics of learning a stringed instrument (violin or cello) and provides the opportunity to develop skills in an ensemble setting. Three orchestras at varying levels of difficulty comprise SCStrings including junior, intermediate and senior. The program teaches musical literacy, theory, technique and ensemble playing, all under the direction of Ms. Mylana Goheen. This program runs once a week after school for the entire school year and includes a minimum of two performances. All students are responsible to provide their own instruments; music is provided.

Outdoor Learning

From an early age, children are curious about nature. Being outside in nature can stimulate a child’s sense of wonder and discovery. Our outdoor education supports inquiry and play based learning. Our kindergarten and grade 1 students go outside 1 morning per week to local parks like: Godwin Park, Derby Reach, Tynehead Regional and Green Timbers. Our deep hope is to invite students to ignite their excitement and curiosity for the natural world. We have a great opportunity to immerse our children in the awesome creation that God has given us to take care of.
