Extracurricular: Instrument Lessons

As part of the classical Quadrivium, music is both a science and an art. Learning to play a musical instrument brings them together in a practical and (eventually) beautiful way. Most students are able to learn to play some instrument, even if it takes several tries to find the right one. It is recommended that they rent their instrument to begin with from a local music store, and when they have found one to continue learning for years, it will be worth buying it. Lessons take place after school on Mondays and Wednesdays. Besides an instrument, students will have to buy a method book for their instrument. This includes a CD that can be used for practice.

The instruments that beginning students should consider, depending on personal factors, include:

  • Trumpet or Cornet
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Baritone
  • Trombone
  • Percussion

Each of these instruments represents a family of (often more expensive) instruments that the student may try after becoming proficient with one of these. Examples: flugelhorn, saxophone, piccolo, tuba or mellophone, bass trombone, and bells.
