The Music Program at SJK provides an enriching experience for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. The students start with singing, Orff instruments, and rhythm-based movement activities and begin to play an instrument starting in Grade 5. Students will learn the basics of playing their instrument and will eventually become proficient at performing a wide variety of music including both traditional concert band and jazz band music, with instrumental music being a part of the core curriculum through to Grade 8. In Grades 9 and 10, students can select instrumental as an elective. The goals of the program are to foster a love of music, engage students with a variety of musical styles and cultures, and to provide students with the chance to apply their learning in a variety of performance contexts.
