Music is one of the primary forms that man uses to offer praise and worship to God. It is also true that the voice is the one instrument that God has created and given to every man. The study of music at SouthLake Christian Academy begins with younger students experiencing the joys of singing and praising. This approach lays the foundation for learning to read and write music. Students are initially introduced to instrumental music through the recorder and later have the opportunity to apply their interest to instruments.
Middle school students expand their musical capabilities by improving music reading skills, gaining musical independence and introducing ensemble techniques through choir or the Bells ensemble. Students may audition for the Middle School Honors choir. High school students continue their musical study by participating in either the Choir and Bells Ensemble or orchestra elective classes.
Students at all grade levels participate in a variety of musical performances. In addition to the traditional Christmas and Spring Concerts, students in Lower School perform smaller programs that use music to cross over the curriculum to include the subjects being studied in the general classroom.
The High School Choir and Bells Ensemble regularly go into the community to perform at local nursing homes and hospitals. The Middle School Honors Choir, High School Choir and Bells Ensemble and Orchestra participate regularly in educational music festivals such as the Association Of Christian Schools International Music Festival and Carowinds Music Days.
