Baptist Regional School has a long history of excellence in the performing arts. Every student’s vocal ability is developed through compulsory participation in our grade school Choir, ensuring that every student will graduate with exposure to reading music and performing on stage. Students wishing to continue in the pursuit of vocal excellence are able to continue in Chorale, Music Team, and several ensemble groups at the Jr. and Sr. High School levels.
Specifically at the Elementary Level first and second graders learn to play the Krystal Handbells. Third and fourth graders learn to play the Recorder using the program Recorder Karate. Miss Schill has added a second level (Advanced Recorder Karate) for those who have already earned all their belts using the published version of Recorder Karate.
Every Elementary Music Class is started with 3M time — 3 Music Making Minutes. We open with prayer and ask the Lord to give us discernment with the music we listen to, we sing and we make. It is our desire to “Make a joyful noise unto our Lord.”
Instrumental training is also available through sixth grade, with ample opportunity to exercise performing skills at all grades in our Beginner, Intermediate and Concert Bands.
The Baptist High Players perform in major theatrical productions every school year and students have the opportunity to exercise their desire to act as well as develop important team skills and experience God’s strength in new and challenging ways.
