In Perfect Harmony
“Bach gave us God’s Word. Mozart gave us God’s laughter. Beethoven gave us God’s Fire. God gave us music, that we might pray without words.” author unknown
Students exploration of instrumental music can have a significant positive impact on their academics, social and cultural understanding, and their personal relationship with the Creator. Playing an instrument greatly increases a student's math comprehension and spatial and pattern recognition. In addition, music training also helps language and problem solving skills, increases creativity, provides a healthy outlet for emotions, builds confidence and teamwork skills, and gives students a niche where they can make lasting connections.
Students at Central Christian begin group violin instruction using the Suzuki Method in first grade. In middle school, students may choose to continue playing a string instrument or choose another instrument from the full orchestra. Orchestra continues for all students through grade eight.
