The instrumental music program allows students to perform with other young musicians from around the Lehigh Valley. Students will learn the fundamentals of music performance, including but not limited to: scale studies, rhythm studies, dynamics, articulations, and sight-reading. They will be exposed to a variety of musical styles and genres as they perform in concerts and participate in workshops.
Students are required to keep a journal in their instrumental classes. These journals include vocabulary words, practice records, class notes, and music-related critical thinking questions. Students will complete self-evaluations throughout the course of the school year. They will critique their playing and use critical thinking skills to set goals on how to continue to improve.
