Music is an essential component of Covenant Christian School. The study of music fosters the development of worshippers, inspires creativity and a love for music, and cultivates basic music skills.
Nearly every 4th and 5th grade student has chosen to learn a stringed instrument.
Music is one of the greatest tools available to us in our worship of God. Therefore, one aspect of each music class will be learning hymns and worship songs. Students will begin each class by singing these selections. “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.” John 4:23
Another aspect of the music program is to inspire students to be creative in their expression of music and to foster a lifelong love and appreciation for this gift. This will be accomplished through singing, movement, instruments, composition, listening, and learning some music history.
Cultivating basic music skills is an essential part of the music program. All students will be learning the elements of music appropriate for their level: rhythm, pitch, tone color, dynamics, melody, harmony, instruments of the orchestra, etc.
