Music at Calvin Christian School
The music program at CCS involves many different areas of participation. Since all of us have been created with one of the finest musical instruments, the human voice, music is an important part of our curriculum. In the primary grades, we concentrate on singing, rhythm and beat, using Orff and Kodaly methods. In the junior grades, recorder playing enhances music skills and the teaching of theory. Choir and instruments allow for the practice of good skills and the enjoyment of performance. Musicanada is the primary curriculum resource for grades one to six. The grades seven and eight program consists of a band program. Co-curricular music related programs at CCS include the Concert Band, Jazz Band, Senior Choir, Junior Choir, and the Instrumental Praise Team. These groups are made up of volunteers and they perform at special events.
