String Orchestra

As both academic classes and performance groups, Webb's string orchestra classes provide an excellent opportunity for both new and experienced musicians to develop their skills. All classes offer instruction on the violin, viola, cello and double bass. Strings I gives those students who have never played a stringed instrument the opportunity to quickly learn how to play while learning to read music. No previous musical experience is needed to enroll.
 

Intermediate Strings is a class for students with 1-2 years’ experience. These musicians study more advanced music while developing their shifting, vibrato, reading and performance skills. Webb’s most advanced orchestra class, String Orchestra, teaches students more complex string literature and advanced techniques. This class is for high school students only.


Piano

At The Webb School, courses in beginning piano to highly advanced piano are offered to our students. Most recently students performed a “Mostly Chopin” concert in chapel (Spring 2018). The repertoire included works by Chopin, Debussy, and Liszt.
 
Webb's creativity takes place amid the 11,000 square feet of halls and classroom that comprise the Lundin Fine Arts Center. This facility features a choir room, piano lab with 12 pianos, string ensemble room, recording studio, theatre room for drama classes and rehearsals, individual practice rooms, an art gallery and a 4,000 square-foot room that houses two and three dimensional art classrooms.

Guitar

The guitar course at Webb, taught by Drew Creal, aims to prepare a student to play guitar in a variety of settings. Students learn repertoire, technique, and how to approach the guitar in a way that allows freedom and improvisation. Multiple genres and styles are covered in an effort to make the student as versatile as possible.

 


Choir

Webb's choir is both an academic class and a performing ensemble. Students learn to read and sing music from a variety of periods as they work to prepare and perform together. The Choir performs both on and off campus throughout the year with the December Service of Lessons and Carols and the Spring Concert serving as highlights.
