Welcome to St. John's Music


Two big events of note for your calendar right now:

Thursday, December 16

Our Annual Christmas Celebration

Wednesday, May 18

Festival of the Arts


We have both a daytime dress rehearsal (open to families) and an evening formal performance for all students. All families are encourage to accommodate these important performances in their family calendar. This is the time for the kids to demonstrate all of their great work.


What's Happening in Music?

  • Students are learning about the music of TIbet as they prepare for the International Festival. The children will study:
    • The Tibetan National Anthem
    • Traditional instruments
    • Traditional folk songs
    • The rush to save traditional Tibetan work songs as they rapidly disappear due to generational attrition and technological advancement

Students in Grade Three will play the recorder this year beginning after the Christmas holidays.
