Music is a part of our daily life at Abiding Savior. In the classroom you hear students singing lunch prayers, devotional and good-bye songs. We sing every week in chapel and have regular music classes. Classes are scheduled to sing in church at least twice a year.
Classroom music in grades JK-6 covers basic music skills, singing seasonal songs, recorders, hand bells, families of the orchestra, music appreciation, rhythmic movement, composers, patriotic and sacred music.
Special music groups include:
KIDS OF THE KINGDOM CHOIR: Grades 1-4. This choir develops proper singing skills and prepares music for chapel, our Christmas concert, and Sunday morning worship services. They practice Tuesdays after school until 4:00 pm.
BELLS FOR JESUS: Grades 4-8. Handbells teach the students coordination and focus as well as musical skills. This group plays in church, for chapel, and at our annual Christmas concert. They participate in the Young Ringers Festival in the spring. We practice on Thursdays after school until 4:15
BELLS FOR JESUS 2.0: This is a group of students who are experienced bell players and can do more advanced music. They will play in church, for chapel, and at our annual Christmas concert. They also can participate in the Young Ringers Festival. We practice during the school day on Thursdays.
CHRISTMAS SERVICES: Preschool, JK, and Kindergarten prepare a Christmas program together. First through sixth grades prepare a special Christmas service that involves music and speaking parts to tell the Christmas story.
MUSICALS: Grades JK, K-5 prepare a Christian musical that showcases their singing, dancing, and acting talents in the spring. This is often a highlight of the year.
BAND LESSONS: Band lessons are available for students in grades 4-8. Shawna Newman teaches our band classes.
