Music at Most Holy Trinity
All students, preschool through eighth grade, receive formal musical instruction twice a week. Students are given class instruction on instruments such as keyboard, drums, guitar, recorder, glockenspiel, xylophone and a variety of small percussion instruments, as well as a choral ensemble and Bell choir.
Throughout the year students apply their musical education through performances in the Liturgy choir at weekly masses, holiday programs, and performances at various venues around the valley promoting self-confidence and leadership abilities.
To augment the musical instruction already in place, MHT utilizes the Katzin Program which provides resources in the form of recorded music, text books and activities, musical equipment, and live musical performances. Through the Katzin Program students are introduced to the world of music and given a glimpse into the lives and music of the most famous composers from the Renaissance to the Modern era.
We foster a love for music in general through exposure to a wide variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, popular, folk, and religious hoping to give each child a more well-rounded education and a better appreciation for music of all genres.
"Our educational work should go this way to achieve harmony - harmony in all the boys and girls who have been entrusted to us; inner harmony, the harmony of their personality. It is by working in a hands-on way, imitating God, molding the lives of those kids like clay, that we achieve harmony and rescue them from the dissonances perennial darkness. Harmony, by contrast, is bright and clear; it is light. What we have to achieve is the harmony of a heart that grows and that we accompany in this educational journey."
~ Pope Francis (then, Cardinal Bergoglio – April 18, 2012)
