CIC Instrumental Program
“Some people think music education is a privilege, but I think it’s essential to being human.”
- Jewel – singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist
The Music program at CIC is integrated and aligned PN-12. Students who matriculate through CIC begin with basic music perception skills, then acquire music appreciation skills, and then grow through music performance, analysis and composition skills. At all levels, students learn developmentally-appropriate theoretical and historical concepts. Throughout the process and at all levels, the CIC Instrumental music program inculcates in its young performing artists important life skills such as organization, responsibility, respect, teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, research, leadership and self confidence.
The Instrumental program has a number of important groups that perform on the school events during the year: the CIC Concert Band, the CIC Jazz Ensemble and the CIC Chamber ensembles. These groups present multicultural programs of a mix repertoire and styles in accordance with the international nature of our school, thus giving our students and the community the opportunity to explore and learn about music from different cultures.
