The goal of West Gate Christian School's music program is to train our students to use music to glorify God, to enjoy the talents and abilities that He gives, to aid in social and cognitive skills, and to have fun! Studies show that music helps in child development in many ways. Because of this, our music program starts with our Kindergarten class. Students in K5 through 2nd grade will sing and learn the foundations of rhythm with many different classroom instruments. In 3rd grade, students learn to play the recorder which lays the foundation for the following year. In 4th grade, students choose an instrument and join band, participating in concerts and festivals. Through Elementary years and into Junior High and High School, students can participate in choir and band. West Gate Christian School has received many awards in vocal and instrumental competitions as both a group and through individual students. Private piano, vocal, and instrument lessons are also available for students.
