Music Program Overview

On our campus, we are proud to offer two dedicated music rooms where students can explore both vocal and instrumental music. These spaces serve as creative hubs where students can develop their musical talents and express themselves through the universal language of music. 


At Academie Da Vinci, we believe in the transformative power of the arts, and our music and theater programs are designed to inspire creativity, foster collaboration, and instill a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts in our students. Through engaging classes, rehearsals, and performances, we strive to provide a supportive and enriching environment where students can explore their passions, develop their talents, and discover the joy of artistic expression. 


In our upper grades music classes students explore performance and written expression of music. Students learn basic music theory, including composing and performing an original song, singing technique and vocal performance, and instrumental techniques in recorder consort, ukulele, and pitched and unpitched percussion. Students also study theater skills and music theater. Each year their skills are highlighted in a music theater performance in the spring semester.
