The King’s Ridge Christian School Instrumental music program is an important part the students experience beginning in Pre-K. The Lower School has weekly general music classes that lay the foundation for musicianship and artistic expression.
Beginning in 5th grade, students can explore and discover their interests through two studio labs. One features 14 pianos and the second 20 guitars. Not only do they gain skills on instrument of choice, they continue to build their music theory skills and sight reading. Class recitals and showcases are presented at the culmination of each quarter.
In High School, students continue to build their skills as musicians through piano lab offered during the curricular day with lessons and music theory. AP Music Theory is offered based on recommendation. Juries are held at the end of each semester for students to perform for a panel of Music Faculty. Juries are meant to replicate college auditions.
Co-curricular programs are through Worship Arts with the Chapel Worship Band that meets weekly. This group is led by Alex Young and leads in over 60 chapels during the school year. The band features vocals, keyboard, piano, guitar, cajon and drums. Planning Centered is utilized which is a valuable tool used by professionals in the planning and execution of programs. The 2018-19 school year will add a middle school band to the current high school band.
