Lower School Music

Our vibrant music program is accessible to all students, regardless of experience, ability level, and interests. Our curriculum provides numerous ways for students to create, perform and experience music through a wide array of opportunities.

Our music curriculum begins in the Lower Division, where all students are exposed to weekly instruction.

Orchestra

Learning to play a bowed stringed instrument provides an exceptional avenue for challenge and growth. We believe in a clear connection between music education and classroom performance, improved social skills and greater emotional well being.

Orchestra is offered in all three divisions at Maclay and range from beginning to advanced instruction.

Band and Chorus

Band students learn playing fundamentals and basic musicianship.  As they continue their studies, they refine their individual and ensemble playing skills, and further explore the expressive qualities of musical performance.  Students are exposed to a wide variety of band literature throughout their time in band. 

Maclay offers a range of courses from beginning band, chorus, to jazz ensemble.
