Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
What Makes the Music Program at Oakcrest Stand Out?
Why do all Oakcrest Students Study Music?
As a universal human expression, music is fundamental to developing a complete understanding of our world and our personal contribution within society. The study of music at Oakcrest encourages students to explore musical expression both individually and in community.
Music study is required of all students in Middle School. Upper School students take Music and Arts Appreciation in their sophomore year and may elect to continue their music study by taking other elective offerings throughout their Upper School years.
Music courses are sequential and include instruction in vocal or instrumental technique, performing music of various genres and time periods, and studying solfeggio and the fundamentals of music theory.
