Music at Pine Hills Adventist Academy: The Gift that Keeps on Giving
While many of America’s schools are eliminating music from the curriculum, Pine Hills Adventist Academy has adopted music education as part of its cultural DNA. Principles of music appreciation and theory are introduced to Kindergarten students and are expanded upon throughout elementary and high school years. Enriching music experiences also take place outside the classroom! The academy gives back to the community by performing at civic and recreational events. It has become an annual tradition for their Choralaires to perform at the Capitol in Sacramento. Legislators, office workers, and tourists gather in the rotunda to hear their songs echoing throughout the marble hallways.
