The UCDS Music program empowers students to become musicians in a fun, hands-on, creative environment. Using an immersive, project-based approach, Music teachers build upon each student’s inherent musicality and explore the multitude of ways that humans can be musical. Students become creators, songwriters and musical thinkers, and develop an appreciation of music across cultures and genres. Classes cultivate a wide range of instrumental and vocal skills that are showcased through dynamic performances and recordings. Topics of study emerge each year from the school-wide theme, and are integrated with curricular explorations in other areas of the school program.
