Music with Mr. Jean-Paul Jones
World music and cultural
traditions are explored in our St. James music classes along with litur
d meaning. Our 2018-2019 theme is Latin American music traditions. Students
perform twice during the school year. Our Winter concert features Christmas
music and our Spring concert showcases popular music from around th
e world and
throughout the ages.
St. James families are encouraged
to cultivate their child’s musical abilities outside school, whether by instrument
or voice lessons, weekly liturgical participation or independent music study.
For students wishing to enrich
their music study, St. James students may join choir. Participants will learn
three-part as well as solo signing. Content focus for 2018-2019 is jazz and contemporary/pop
