Music

157-v1m.jpg

Music is to the ear what art is to the eye and dance is to the body; an inexplicable need to express ones self through a shared sensory experience. our ability to understand the intrinsic workings of music serves to enhance our ability to connect with this expression, and in that moment, to one another.

– Duane Case, Music Department Chair

The Music department at Haverford provides a wealth of experiences in active music making, from Junior Kindergarten through grade 12. Students sing, dance, play percussion instruments, study guitar, use equipment on the cutting edge of music technology to orchestrate, arrange, compose music, and study the works of the master composers. They perform in orchestras, choirs, and select vocal and instrumental ensembles. As musicians/music educators who love children, we strive to share our love of our art and the joy and enrichment it can provide our students.
