The Performing Arts program at The Master's School grants students at every grade level the chance to develop their God-given creativity through a wide array of required and elective classes in art, music, and drama.
For Lower School students, weekly music classes are offered to all grades, supplemented by instrumental lessons and ensembles. The youngest students receive basic instruction in developing rhythms and playing instruments; this teaching begins to be formalized for third through sixth graders, who are also able to take choir.
Vocal and instrumental instruction is continued in Middle School, beginning to teach proper performance while developing students’ growth as an ensemble. In these grades, students begin to learn basic techniques, such as proper breath support, for optimal performance and maintenance of their instrument, while their repertoire expands into a wide variety of religious and secular music.
In the Upper School, the Performing Arts program becomes more formalized, as students with a focus on vocals learn to sing well as part of a chorus, and those who play an instrument delve further into the complexities of performing as a band. Students learn at a more advanced level in order that they may best use the talents God gifted them. Those in eighth through twelfth grade are eligible to audition for the annual school play; high schoolers may also take a class in theatre performance.
