There are many ways to make music at SAAS, including Band, String Ensemble, Vocal groups, and Music Production! In Middle School, there are single-trimester classes in Vocal music and Music Production, and year-long band classes in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. In Upper School, the options continue for Band, Vocal (Jazz and Choir), and Music Production, and students can also play in a String Ensemble or take a Beginning Music Appreciation class. 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" in the Upper School in the Band and Vocal music programs for those students who want to make a more focused commitment to skill and repertoire development through practice and study. Jazz Band I & II are by audition, as are the three different levels of Vocal Jazz Choir.
