“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning” Plato
The music program at Saint Brigid School provides children with a creative outlet for their talents. Music improves analytical skills, increases processing skills, and promotes teamwork.
At Saint Brigid School we use the Kodaly voice method, which is a voice-based music curriculum. In addition to singing, students learn the language of music: reading music, writing music, and creating music.
Students learn to play several instruments while at Saint Brigid. Violin/Viola is offered during class time in the 5th and 6th Grades. Students may also participate in the String Orchestra, which takes place after school. In addition to Violin/Viola, our students learn to play the recorder and handbells. Afterschool offerings also include piano lessons and ukelele.
Saint Brigid School has a special relationship with the Saint Mary's Cathedral music program, which provides our students with unparalleled opportunities, including tuition scholarships, weekly choir rehearsals, annual performance tours, and a donor base that ensures our student receive the finest TK-8th Grade music education that we can dream up.
