Music at St. John’s
Students at St. John’s receive a wide variety of music instruction. From singing and moving to recorders and band instruments, there is something for everyone!
Music is not only an integral part of our academic lives but also our spiritual lives as we learn and sing at our school liturgies. As St. Augustine spoke, “Those who sing, pray twice.” Students in grades K-5 receive music instruction twice per week for 30 minutes. Students in middle school have music instruction once per week for 50 minutes. Students in grades 4 – 8 have the option of joining band and playing an instrument.
