A wide range of music opportunities is available to all Princeton Day School students of any age.
The program combines a rich curriculum with excellent instrumental instruction and many performance opportunities.
Lower School students gain competency in basic skills such as singing, rhythm, movement and dance, dramatic expression and instrument playing. Highlights include the Thanksgiving Sharing Assembly, the Lower School Holiday Concert, the Fourth Grade Operetta, and a vibrant Lower School Strings Program.
Middle School students explore improvisation and composition, musical form and design, and develop sight-reading skills. Choirs, String Ensembles and Band are integral. All students in fifth and sixth grades participate in one of the ensembles. Private individual and group instrumental lessons are also available.
Upper School students can learn and participate in performance-based courses, academic music courses and extra-curricular activities for enrichment. Private music lessons in voice and all instruments are also available through the Adjunct Music Faculty for an additional fee.
In addition, we have an extra-curricular program taught by our faculty as well as a distinguished adjunct music faculty in the areas of woodwind, brass, string, percussion, voice, guitar, and piano.
