The creative arts are a very important part of life and worship at West Hills Christian School. Music plays an important role in the total learning experience of a child. Psalm 33:3 encourages us to sing and play skillfully. Musical activities will build basic skills in the main elements of music- melody, rhythm, harmony, tone color and form. Music terminology, history, appreciation, performance opportunities, as well as Biblical concept.
YEARLY MAJOR MUSICAL PRODUCTIONS
Each grade takes part in a major production once a year. Kindergarten students perform at their graduation. Students in Grades 1 and 2 perform a Spring Concert. The Patriotic program is performed by the 3rd and 4th graders and grades 5th and 6th perform a Christmas concert. These concerts are perfect opportunities to invite friends and family to visit our wonderful school. All performances are led by our Music Director, Mrs. Brumley.
CRUSADER CHORALE, SINGING GROUP
The purpose of Crusader Chorale is to glorify God through song. Our objectives include practicing worship, strengthening musical skills, ministering through performance, and experiencing fellowship together. This group is open to committed 5th and 6th grade students. Chorale runs fall and spring sessions and will be featured at school concerts, ACSI and community events including a holiday concert at Christmas and other productions throughout the year. All performances are led by our Music Director, Mrs. Brumley.
BAND & JAZZ ENSEMBLE
The band program is open to student in grades 4th-8th. The primary goal of band is to develop the entire musician and to cultivate musical talent that can be used for the glory of God throughout his/her lifetime.
Beginning band is for students who have never played an instrument. This covers such fundamentals as how to hold the instrument properly and achieve correct sounds. Advanced Band and Jazz Ensemble are for those students who have had at least one year experience with an instrument and are taught music theory, ear training, conducting and music appreciation. Students participate in three concerts and one festival each year. Band performances are led by our Band Director, Mrs. Kuhns. _
