Choir

Xavier Elementary School

The St. Francis Xavier Elementary general music program offers students an opportunity to explore and experience the world of music through singing, playing instruments, performing, listening, creating and through the use of music literacy, music history and movement. With each piece of music and activity students are able to learn and experience different aspects of music – rhythm, pitch, melody, timbre and form. We also explore musical instruments, genres, eras and the works of famous composers. Our goal in general music is to create in our students a lifelong love, understanding and appreciation of music.

Involvement in the choir program at Xavier Middle School provides avenues and opportunities for artistic expression, and the discovery of hidden talents. Our program promotes self-confidence, individual growth, and leadership among our students. Life lessons, such as leadership and teamwork are taught along with providing a strong sense of community.

Xavier High School

In the choir room, students will learn not simply to sing and to sing well, but they learn to grow together with their fellow choristers to become a cohesive group of musicians. Students will come to understand the background of the pieces they sign, theoretical concepts within the music, and information about the style and composer. Singing in a choir will also provide an excellent experience in supportive learning, as the very nature of singing is one of expression, creativity, energy, and cooperation. Everyone in the choir is given the opportunity to stand among a group of people and make music. Every student has the chance to be a musician and be a part of something beautiful.
