Music and Fine Arts

Letter from the Music Director

I am excited to get this new school year started!

The Music program at Mile High Academy has been designed to grow our students from Preschool up through the Academy.

From Preschool through 2nd, students will explore the violin through the Suzuki strings curriculum.

Grades 3-5 will be focused on going further into the string family with choices of violin, viola or the cello.

Students in the middle school will be able to participate in the String Orchestra program (violin, viola or cello), in the Band program, or to try out for our handbell choir. Because the middle school Music program is designed this year to cover two separate class periods, students may choose to be in two ensembles.

All students from Preschool through 8th grade will participate in choir. This is an imperative part of your child’s education that teaches ear training and proper singing techniques. All students will be performing a minimum of at least 2 performances a year – Christmas & Spring Concert – along with other opportunities that may pop up throughout the year.

The Academy will feature two ensembles – Symphonic Band and Concert Choir “Voce” – who will be going on Music tour this year.

The goal is to create a strong string program at MHA that will enrich our student’s love for music. My prayer is that it will grow exponentially in the next few years enough to have an Orchestra and a Concert Band at the Academy level! Wouldn’t it be exciting to see your children playing in a full band and full orchestra? There is so much potential here at MHA and I am thrilled to be given this opportunity to teach your children.
