Your child will flourish in the arts as they discover the joy and beauty of creating and sharing music under the guidance of our caring and inspiring music teachers.
Preschoolers are welcomed into the world of music with songs integrated in learning as they go about their day. They are introduced to simple music instruments, discover the joy of using their voice and learn about rhythm in fun, accessible activities in the classroom.
Lower School students will have hands-on discovery lessons in their music class, where they are introduced to new music styles. In Lower School your child will learn how to play the African drums, move with rhythm, and learn how they can control their voice to sing in harmony with others.
As your child grows, so will their musical abilities and opportunities. Starting in fifth grade, students can select a band or orchestral instrument and participate in lessons and group practice and performance. Middle Schoolers can join jazz band and play during a variety of milestone events at Minnehaha.
In Upper School, the sky is the limit! Your child may choose from a variety of choral and instrumental groups, surrounded by peers and instructors who love music as much as they do. Our musical groups perform in local, national, and international venues that provide new opportunities to discover the world of performance and music. Local professionals also are invited to guest instruct musical ensembles, which offers new and exciting experiences for our students to grow in their potential.
