The Instrumental Music Program at Regents serves various communities by sharing God’s gift of music through performance. The goal of the program is to develop independent musicians with the technical and musical skills to prepare music, and serve their communities musically as they go out into the world. Students participating in large ensembles have the opportunity to perform for a large variety of events, including: semester concerts, chapel services, athletic events, state competitions, graduation and special campus events. Individually, students may participate in solo and ensemble competitions, audition for All-State music competitions and prepare music for various campus events.
Students will be exposed to a variety of musical styles which broadens their minds to different cultures and historical periods in the world. They will also increase their ability to read music notation. (This symbolic system challenges the mind to use its highest creative potential and aids it in the understanding of not only art, but language and science as well.)
Being a part of musical activities is an integral part of preparing students to contribute to the world in any occupation or capacity. Band provides opportunities for students to develop individually in leadership roles, to work collectively, to set and meet goals, and develop their creativity and imagination.
