SPCPA has expanded its arts programming to offer two additional track options for next school year:

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC: CONTEMPORARY
and
VOCAL ARTS: SINGER-SONGWRITER.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC: CONTEMPORARY will serve students on all instruments. Students will engage primarily with contemporary and popular music, though every genre of music will be explored. A focus will be placed on the creation of new music. THERE ARE NO STANDARDS TO MEET IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO GAIN ENTRANCE INTO THIS PROGRAM.

All 9th and 10th grade Vocal Arts students will take their foundational courses together, but prior to the 11th grade, students will study exclusively in one of two programs:

VOCAL ARTS: SINGER-SONGWRITER
Students will develop their voices, learn to accompany themselves on an instrument, and begin to work with current music technology. Their Senior Capstone recital will showcase their abilities as performers, songwriters, and music producers.

VOCAL ARTS: VOCAL PERFORMANCE
Students will dedicate themselves to two years of in-depth studies in vocal technique and repertoire. The Senior Capstone recital will prepares students to successfully compete in conservatory entrance auditions and exams.

An updated application for new students is available on our website. Current students interested in the new track offerings should complete a Track Change request form prior to the end of this school year.
