Music

 

Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced musician, you'll find your rhythm in Peddie's music program.

Classes cover diverse fields of music at various levels of expertise, as well as musical theory and history. If you want to continue your studies outside of the classroom, you can take private lessons, accompany our theatrical performers as part of the Pit Orchestra and perform at school and community events.

You'll have the opportunity to participate in three choral groups, as well as seven instrumental ensembles that span everything from rock to classical to jazz to exclusively percussive instruments (including trash cans). Musical professionals often visit campus to provide higher-level discussion about their craft.
