Ascension provides a strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics, (STEAM). To this end, the Music Program at Ascension is viewed as a critical discipline in the curriculum. Particularly in the younger grades, instruction involves the use of voice, body movement and a varied selection of musical instruments. All students are encouraged to use all of their senses to immerse themselves in the music. As musicians, students learn to hear and feel the music through physical, emotional and social experiences.
Instruction is based on the diocesan standards and leads students to build upon and perfect age appropriate skills.
Students experience a wide range of genres including liturgical, patriotic and popular musical selections.
Ascension offers students many opportunities to participate in musical performances:
- Bell Choir
- Flute Choir
- Liturgical Ensemble
- Orff Ensemble
