Announcing the SBA Music Academy
Saint Basil Academy is pleased and proud to present a new program starting in the 2015-2016 school year – the SBA Music Academy. The Saint Basil Music Academy, with its foundation in the strong academic program of this all-girls college-preparatory Academy, is an outgrowth of the music studies that have been in place at the Academy since its inception.
Saint Basil Academy values study of the arts, for to be fully human includes the ability to respond to our innate creativity and to the beauty of the world around us. Music allows the spirit to feel what mere words cannot express.
The Music Academy is an intensive major that will give the student who wishes to excel either in vocal, instrumental, or piano studies the instruction and practicum needed to present oneself as a true musician. While all SBA students are invited to participate in our traditional performing groups, the Music Academy will give participants additional opportunities to practice their musical skills, as well as steep themselves in studies of music theory and related subjects, music history, technology, and applied classes, including chamber ensembles and master classes.
Students completing the Music Academy will be awarded special certification in addition to the Saint Basil Academy diploma. The program will prepare them to continue further studies in university and conservatory programs. The SBA Music Academy is pleased to welcome eight young ladies into the inaugural class.
