Course - Music

At Covenant Christian School, students are encouraged to develop their gifts in music in order to be able to serve their classmates and the Covenant community. They can do this through performance opportunities while exploring their creativity through composition. At an individual level, music is a medium of personal expression, and thus lends itself to the expression of faith, for both the individual and as a tool for outreach. Students are challenged to consider how they can use their gifts in music to further God’s kingdom.
