At New Hampton School, we contribute to the students' sense of self and community through cooperative, comprehensive, and specialized instruction in music. This approach infuses skills, knowledge, and character into New Hampton School's philosophically advanced global curriculum and ensures that the school will stay on the cutting edge of secondary private education in the country.
New Hampton School offers a wide variety of classes in music. Students can take classes in Guitar, Piano, Voice Lab (A cappella ensemble), Contemporary Performance Lab (Rock/Jazz Band), Introduction to Recording Techniques, Instrumental Lab (Instrumental Ensembles), and Music Theory. We have a vibrant private lessons program and can provide an appropriate instructor for each student's choice of instrument and skill set. Every year during Project Week, we travel to a major city to record at world class recording studios. We work hard to create opportunities for New Hampton School musicians to share and grow their talents by providing students opportunities to work with some of the most talented professionals in the music business. Please take a listen!
We love to perform! There are numerous opportunities to do so throughout the academic year and our community is tremendously supportive of our musicians. A fully-equipped recording studio is available to all classes as a diagnostic tool to track progress and also as a means to create a professional quality recording. Our musicians regularly participate in state-wide and district festivals for Jazz, Orchestra, Band, and Chorus.
