Middle School Fine Arts
Fine Arts Course Offerings in Middle School
In the middle school, the fine arts curriculum is designed to build upon the foundations of arts education cultivated in the lower school years. Students in grade 6 begin this building process by choosing one fine arts course in which to specialize for an entire year. This enables students to develop set of specific performance techniques, skills, and literacy in a given medium while continuing to build their aesthetic sensitivity as an individual. While only one fine arts course is required, students with an affinity for the arts are often able to fit two fine arts electives into their schedule in grade 6.
Fine Arts electives available to students in grade 6 include:
- ACT 2 (drama group by audition only)
- Band (expand the section below to learn more about the program and instruments)
- Choir (expand the section below to learn more about the program)
- Intro to Broadcasting
- Orchestra (expand the section below to learn more about the program and instruments)
- Visual Art
Regardless of their God-given talents, our curriculum aims to provide every middle school student at CCS with a comprehensive arts education experience that will prepare them for the path God has for them in upper school and beyond.
Be a Part of the Music
All Charlotte Christian School grade 5 students are currently selecting their fine arts elective for the next school year. Band, choir, and orchestra are electives that meet every other day during normal school hours. The classes focus on developing fundamental vocal skills or performance skills on a beginning band or orchestra instrument while teaching students how to read notes and rhythms. The classes take commitment but are rewarding and enjoyable.
This page contains information about sixth grade beginning band, choir, and orchestra at Charlotte Christian School and is designed to help you and your child make an informed decision about whether music is a good fit for them and, if they choose band or orchestra, which instrument they most want to play.
