Enriching the lives of our students with art experiences across the curriculum as well as exploring a wide variety of art mediums and techniques is an important part of our Middle School education.  Students create in-depth projects throughout the year and explore art theory and history.

Band

Band

Our goals in band are to gain a fundamental knowledge of each instrument, from completing group and individual musical works which challenge students musically, to gaining a basic knowledge of rudimentary skills, such as scales/arpeggio’s/chords. Students will begin an understanding of basic improvisation and how it relates to all periods of music, enjoy making music, and continually grow spiritually, using God-given gifts and talents.

Here at Holy Cross we recognize the blessings and benefits that God has gifted us through music and want to share those gifts with you by honoring our Lord through singing. Raising our voices to glorify God is our main purpose in this class. With concerts throughout the year and opportunities to sing in church we hope you are moved by His spirit when hearing His children sing.
