Music


Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.” – Plato

Music is a priority at Oakwood from general music classes in Lower School to students choosing the area of concentration that interests them in Middle and Upper School.

In Lower School, music is a more generalized approach with a Suzuki strings program for those interested in additional offerings. Beginning in fourth grade, students select a course of musical study from three offerings: band, chorus, or strings. Each course teaches responsible rehearsal skills and music reading and encourages active listening.

Students and musical groups participate in winter and spring music concerts, community performances and are also encouraged to participate in various and appropriate competitions.
