Music Program

Music Program

We believe The Arts are a major component of a well-rounded education.  Over two-thirds of our student body are involved in Music at Hephatha!  We arrange our before, during, and after school schedules to ensure students have the space to participate in simultaneous extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.  During their time at Hephatha, students have the opportunity discover who they are and what drives them, so that they have a healthy focus when they graduate!  Involvement in Athletics, Music, Academies and Fine Arts are great opportunities for our students do just that.

At the beginning of each school year, our students attend a Music assembly, where they enjoy an introductory concert to the many instruments we offer.  Watch our piece titled, “Arts for Achievement” to see how vocal and instrumental music are integrated in to our curriculum!

Choral Groups

 The CDC states that the spread of  SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, might be highly transmissible in certain settings, including group singing events. For this reason, students are required to wear a mask when participating in choir.  We will be keeping an eye on our county’s metrics to see if it will be safe to continue offering choir on a trimester-to-trimester basis.

Mrs. Deming offers the following Choir courses:

Beginning Choir:  2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades

Advanced Choir5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades
