At Greensboro Day School, music is an essential part of a well-rounded education

Through our music program, students learn about singing, rhythm and movement, performing, creativity, improvisation, teamwork, problem solving, and much more.

We offer a wide range of musical opportunities from that range from Early Childhood to twelfth grade.

  • Lower school students receive general music instruction as part of our specials curriculum. They also have the option to take Suzuki violin or cello instruction through our After School Enrichment program.
  • In Middle School, all fifth and sixth graders experience a quarter of chorus and a quarter of instrumental music; either band or strings. Seventh and eighth graders may choose band, strings, or chorus, as well as any of our other arts electives.
  • Upper school students may participate in a wide range of musical ensembles, including chorus, concert band, jazz band, pep band, orchestra, or chamber music.

Suzuki Instruction

Students in Junior Kindergarten–Grade 4 may take Suzuki Instruction for violin and cello through our After School Enrichment Program. These lessons are taught using the methods developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, which have been adopted by musicians all over the world.
