Whether your goal is to learn to play an instrument, to sing for the first time, or to advance to new heights of achievement, Saint James offers a wide range of music classes and opportunities. Our students are engaged in a variety of musical activities, from singing in the Chapel Choir and a cappella groups to instrumental chamber ensembles and student-organized bands. Applied Music lessons are taught by twelve adjunct music faculty during the academic day so that students do not have to choose between musical interests and athletics, clubs, or theater. Not surprisingly, many students are engaged in more than one area of study in the performing arts.
Our music programs are housed in the Pohanka Fine Arts Center. The state-of-the-art building has three practice rooms, seven teacher studios, an ensemble rehearsal room, choir rehearsal room, classroom, and recital hall.
