Choir: Choir students learn to sing joyfully while studying a wide variety of music, ranging from classic masterpieces to pop standards.
Music literacy is also a large component to choral studies at Chapel Hill Academy. Students study how to read music through solfege, rhythm studies, sight reading, and listening. Choir classes are energetic, enlightening, and encouraging, as students collaborate to sing excellently!
Music Studies: As an alternative to Choir for seventh & eighth grade students, Music Studies covers a wide variety of general music and music appreciation curriculum. Students will study singing, music history, music theory, critical listening, and keyboarding.
With the knowledge that God is the Ultimate Artist and He is wildly creative in His work, middle school students will explore and discover their God given creativity through art classes at CHA. In sixth and seventh grade, students will use their understanding of the elements of art through projects that speak to their culture. With the challenge to be Biblically minded, each project will allow for student expression while being mindful of good use of art principles. Art projects will introduce students to many different mediums such as drawing, painting, graphics, collage, ceramics, wire, and other 3D materials. Many projects will connect with their core subjects such as language arts and history. Every student is considered an artist coming into class and has the understanding that we all are creative in our own ways.
