Instrumental Music

Pioneering a Unique Approach

Beginning in Middle School, students may choose to add band or strings to their classes. Band at BT begins with a focus on jazz, featuring specialized instrumentation and improvised solos from the very first concert. Strings students should have at least a year of private instruction prior to enrolling in orchestra to help students keep up with our fast-paced program.

In upper school students also have the opportunity to take music theory and music technology. In music theory students learn about the art and craft of composition. Music technology students get hands on experience with recording software and equipment, digital and analog synthesizers, create sound effects, and even run the soundboard for BT drama productions.
