Student Life

Music

 

The Shaw School Music Program offers students a wide range of knowledge and musical skills. All students sing tunes ranging from traditional folk to jazz standards and oddities, 60s and 70s classics and more. Younger students play percussion while the older class is home of the Shaw School Ukulele Orchestra, where each student becomes prolific on the fun little instrument. A love of classic movie musicals is instilled through "Musical Appreciation", where Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelley, Judy Garland and the gang are watched, discussed, and much appreciated. Each week ends with "Music Appreciation", a guided listening time which, again, covers the gamut of genres. 

 

 

There are 2 performance opportunities each year. In December comes the Winter Program, an original musical play based on characters dreamed up by the older students and integrating one of the year's academic themes. At the end of the school year, the Spring Concert features the singing, the Ukulele Orchestra, and original songs composed by each class. This is followed by a community-wide jam session, wherein the students show and share their love for playing music for the fun of music, the true goal of the program.
