MUSIC

All music programs present a variety of musical genres and styles. The instructors carefully select repertoire that will allow students to achieve the outcomes of the Alberta Curriculum and reinforce the concepts being taught in theory, history and ear training. 

Students will explore their musical interests through ensembles and self-directed projects with access to computer software for composition and arranging of their own music.
