Music

The FCS music directors would like to personally welcome you aboard a musical adventure that will last a lifetime! Whether you are part of one of the concert bands, orchestras, chamber groups, choirs, worship teams or one of our other performing groups, you are accepting the challenge of musical excellence presented through biblical, educational and social experiences. This department represents a visible and highly-disciplined segment of our school. Our appearances at concerts, contests, ministry performances, sporting and civic events provide a great deal of vitality for the school and community. This is a great opportunity to serve the Lord and give positive testimony to a dying world.

The main emphasis of the music program is to provide a medium in which musicianship and social skills can be formed through a well-rounded music education, leading to equipped students ready to use music to glorify the Lord. This encompasses a basic knowledge of music history and music theory in addition to technical and expressive skill on students' respective instrument or vocal range. Other benefits include pride of accomplishment, self-discipline, leadership and morale. Students also have the opportunity to develop skills in tone production, sight reading, ear training, musicianship, creative expression, evaluation, performance and group dynamics while studying under highly-qualified teachers. Together these factors will help students develop skills they can use throughout their lives.

Students who are involved in music at FCS perform a wide variety of classical, traditional, jazz, popular, patriotic and sacred works to provide for both a broad musical exposure and many avenues for music ministry. A biblical foundation for music is explored through discussion and application of Bible verses and character studies related to biblical truth. By using the time management skills gained through participation in musical ensembles, it is entirely possible to have a highly successful school music career and still maintain a high academic standing, as each skill fuels the other.
