Music is a gift that engages every part of us. Students at King’s participate in vocal and instrumental music, rhythm, and listening skills. They learn about other cultures and worldwide expressions of music, gain a knowledge of music theory, and grow in skill and confidence with opportunities to perform and lead worship.
