SSCA Orchestra Program

Music At SSCA 

South Shore Christian Academy's music program is designed to nurture and grow every student's musical ability, recognizing that every student possesses the ability to create beautiful art. Our desire is to promote music as an art and to provide our students with a well-rounded music education that exposes students to a variety of excellent music.
 
Lower School:
Students in Preschool through Grade 5 participate in weekly music classes. Students in Grades 3-12 can take small-group, fee based, band instrumental lessons through our partner organization, Paul Effman Music. Students in Grades 4-12 can also take small-group string lessons through our in-house String Orchestra program. Both our Band and String Orchestra programs provide performance opportunities throughout the school year.
