Under the direction of Mr. Moses Myung our Secondary Campus Music Department offers an exciting program for all grade levels. The Concert Bands and Concert Choirs are the foundation of our music program where students work diligently together to create beautiful music and work individually to improve their skills and knowledge in music.
Beyond participating in two concerts during the school year, music students perform for the residents of senior care homes while on tour in California, the BC interior and Vancouver Island. Grade 11 and 12 students have a bi-annual opportunity to tour Germany, Austria and Italy during spring break to experience the life and work of master composers such as Bach and Mozart

This grade 10-12 Vocal Jazz group is an exciting, fun ensemble that rehearses and performs various styles of music such as jazz standards, Latin and pop — either with a rhythm section or a capella. 92nd Avenue meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school.
Surrey Christian ROCKademy
The grade 11 and 12 Rock Band is a unique music class that offers an excellent opportunity for students who play guitar, bass or drums to learn, rehearse and perform this exciting but challenging genre of music. The course is scheduled during the regular timetable. They have three rock festivals during the school year. Surrey Christian ROCKademy focuses on “Classic Rock” music from the 60s, 70s and 80s with themes that deal with social and political issues.
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.
