LIFT! Learning Instruments for Truth
This year, we are pleased to add more instrumental music into our lower school offerings. We recognize the benefits that learning to play an instrument brings to students’ growth and development as well as the opportunities it provides for students to continue to play in both middle and high school. When we realized we wouldn’t be able to offer Spanish in the lower school this year, the Lord provided an incredible person to help us get our lower school instrumental program off the ground! Susan Porr is a classically trained clarinetist who has performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the White House, Carnegie Hall and a former member of the US Army Band. She is thrilled to start “LIFT”, which stands for “Learning Instruments For Truth”, where students in TK – 5th grade will learn music through playing boomwhackers, ukuleles, marimbas, recorders and more as they learn the foundation of instruments and lift each other up in joyful sounds along the way! We’re excited to have this as part of our lower school special areas program and look forward to incorporating these instruments into our performances throughout the year.
