The Music Department at Allen-Stevenson uses an eclectic approach to music education that keeps in mind the differing levels, abilities, and learning styles of the students. While fostering personal growth in music, we also stress the boys' ability to work, play and create together. Practical experience is emphasized in the classroom through the playing of instruments, singing and musical games. The ability to sing accurately with a clear tone, to interpret pitch and rhythmic notations, and to participate in group ensembles are three primary goals that are outlined in our curriculum.
Music develops responsibility, self-discipline, self-confidence, self-esteem, a sense of accomplishment, social skills, and the ability to work with others…and it’s fun! ~ Michelle Demko, Head, Music Department
