There are many ways to make music at SAAS! For instrumentalists, there are year-long Instrumental music classes, available beginning in 6th grade. In Middle School, there are also single-trimester classes in Vocal music and Digital Music Production. In Upper School, the same options continue—Instrumental, Vocal, and Digital Music Production—and students can also fulfill their music graduation requirement by participating in the fall musical.
In addition to the many music classes that are available to all students, there are also "audition tracks" for both Instrumental and Vocal Music for those students who want to make a more focused commitment to skill and repertoire development through practice and study. Jazz Bands I & II are by audition, as are the different levels of Vocal Jazz Choir.
