MRCA discovers and develops musical talent
Our Middle School students have the opportunity to participate in Band, a year-long elective that meets during the school day. No previous experience with instruments is required, but it is helpful. Band members perform at least four times a year at various programs and chapel services at Mitchell Road Christian Academy. Band is a great way to incorporate both music appreciation and teamwork into the lives of our Middle School students.
Chorus is an elective available to 5th and 6th grade students. It meets each day, and students have the exciting opportunity to learn how to develop their voices by learning the necessary musical skills to strive for excellence in singing. These skills include reading music, singing with proper technique, with energy, and in parts. Music is comprised of a variety of genres and styles. Students will perform multiple times throughout the school year.
In addition, all 5th – 8th grade students are welcome to join our Vocal Ensemble. We will lift up our voices in song each Thursday morning from 8:15-9:00 am. We will use choral music to help us improve music reading skills, further develop proper vocal technique, build confidence, increase focus, and enjoy working together to create beautiful music, all to the glory of God. Students will perform at the annual Christmas and Spring Concerts.
