At ECS, we strive to develop students to have a heart that loves to praise and worship God through music with a curriculum that is aligned with the State music standards.
Our students are introduced to music in Preschool/Pre-K, and are further developed through weekly music classes in the Elementary level. Middle school students may choose between band and music appreciation including vocal music. Students are taught an appreciation for music while building skill sets in music literacy and performance.
Performing for the Community
We celebrate the arts community with an Elementary Fine Arts Night that involves a collaboration of musicals and art shows that feature each of our elementary students. Students in preschool and elementary grades have performance opportunities at the Christmas Chapel and/or Spring Program including students acting, singing, and dancing. In 4th grade, students learn to play the recorder while also becoming more aware of performing together in a group setting. Students in 5th grade have the opportunity to join the band class. All 5th-12th grade bands perform throughout the school year. High School students can choose to take Concert Band or Concert Choir as a Fine Arts elective. Please refer to the High School page for information on courses and opportunities for high school students.
Middle and high school students in the performing ensembles are given opportunities to represent ECS at the ISSMA competitions each spring. Students are also encouraged to develop servant-leadership skills by participating in our Exploratory Arts offerings and by serving in our local churches and non-profit ministries.
