Elementary Musical Arts
The Elementary campus at Atlantic Shores offers music classes weekly to all students in K3-6th grade, preparing them for a potential spot in the audition-only Seahawk Elementary Honor Choir.
Beginning in the 5th grade, all students play in the Seahawk Elementary Band. Our 4th graders begin to learn rhythm through the recorder, cultivating a relationship and love for music that is deepened during the 5th grade Band assignments.
Which instruments are offered?
Woodwinds: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, and Tenor Sax
Brass: Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, and Euphonium (Baritone Horn)
Percussion: Drum Kit (consisting of snare drum, bells, sticks, and hardware)
Band is not required for all 6th grade students; however, 6th graders can elect band as one of the "Specialty" classes they choose for the year. 6th grade Band students typically choose to continue playing the instrument they selected in the 5th grade.
Seahawk Elementary Honor Choir
The Seahawk Honor Choir is a twenty-four member treble choir of mixed voices. Fourth, fifth, and sixth graders audition each fall to be a part of this select group. The Honor Choir performs a variety of sacred and contemporary choral music at many different venues. They have performed in concert at ASCS, at area nursing homes, at local malls, and compete each Spring in an area choral competition.
