Every student at CCA is involved in music.
Grades K-3 have music class twice a week and learn to sing and to play instruments such as xylophones and percussion.
4th graders continue with singing and playing, and also learn to play the recorder.
5th graders learn to play an instrument in beginning band.
In middle school, band meets every day and students get more experience on their band instrument, as well as learn to sing.
High school wind ensemble includes band and choir components, and students perform in worship services throughout the greater Wenatchee area.
"Basics" learning opportunities will be available after school (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday) for students who could benefit from more instructional time with the teacher and their instrument. These classes will be a group activity, focused on different instrument types during each period.
Students learn problem-solving, focus, nonverbal communication, receiving constructive feedback, collaboration, dedication, and accountability. Students are able to see the result of hard work and gain confidence from it. Together they are able to create a final product that is a beautiful gift to those who hear it.
