Academic Music Courses


In addition to the major applied lessons, CCPS offers an integrated music core curriculum that is the highlight of our school. It includes music theory and harmony in both classical and contemporary areas, solfège, music history and appreciation, ensemble, choir, applied minors, and many more. These classes interact among themselves content-wise to help students establish connections among various musical disciplines, and between theory and performance, in order to create an immersive learning experience and build a solid musical foundation that is essential for their lifelong musical pursuit.
