Music

Music is an integral part of CSW's performing arts curriculum. Students become well versed in many musical styles, and gain a thorough knowledge of the historical and theoretical context of music. The music program balances classical music study with opportunities to pursue more contemporary experiences. In addition to the concert choir and chamber orchestra, the school offers jazz and rock/pop ensembles, as well as high tech courses, such as computer notation and digital recording and editing. A strong emphasis of the program is to encourage students to refine their vocal and instrumental proficiency, and to pursue opportunities for live performance. Fundamental skills are stressed, and students are encouraged to form good practice habits through private lessons, ensemble work, solo rehearsals and performances.
