Preparing Boys for Life

Music Program

The Music Department at Haverford provides a wealth of experiences in active music making from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. 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 practicing musicians and music educators who are dedicated to bringing out the best in each boy, we strive to share our love of our art.
