MUSIC forms a special part of the Northwest community. With a mission to provide a world-class music education, our music teachers inspire and encourage students to develop resilience, grow and excel. Student musicians at NWSA benefit from a collaborative team of experienced instrumental and vocal instructors and a wide range of performance possibilities. Within the four tracks of study—or majors—are several core large ensembles such as concert band, orchestra/string ensembles and choirs. Extension opportunities include jazz ensemble, music theory, chamber music and more. Instrumental music students in our instrumental recital seminar class have the unique opportunity to work with Charlotte Symphony Orchestra musicians throughout the school year.
Musicians can pursue one of four different majors:
- Orchestra (strings)
- Band (winds and percussion)
- Chorus (opens in new window)
- Piano (opens in new window)
