At St. Philip, students are taught to 'make music to the Lord’ beginning in preschool and continuing through 8th grade. All children receive weekly music instruction. In addition to the classroom music curriculum, vocal choirs, handbells, a band program, annual musicals, and Advent services enhance the musical education a child receives.
A band program exists for students in 4th through 8th grade under the supervision of Music Education Services of Chicago. Specific information regarding this program is presented to students and parents at the beginning of each school year.
“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord…”
