Music is alive at The Northwest School! Instrumental and choral ensembles are offered to Middle and Upper School students with varying levels of experience. Performance and compositional based experiences are available at all grade levels.

Middle School students may select from a variety of courses that vary in length from 1-3 trimesters. All 6th graders have the opportunity to learn a beginning string or wind instrument. Instrumentalists with previous experience in 6th, 7th or 8th grade may enroll in Concert Band or String Ensemble. All students may enroll in Chorus classes or Digital Music in the Media.

Upper School students have an array of year-long music classes to choose from. Advanced instrumentalists may audition for the Jazz Ensemble or Chamber Orchestra. Advanced singers may audition for A Cappella Choir. Upper School students without prior musical training may take Chorus or Music Studio. Musical Theatre does a large musical theatre production every other year.
