Music

Preschool Music Program

"Music in Motion" is our motto for our 5 and under crowd.  Through song and rythym, we build valuable listening and social skills.  Music choices are geared towards following directions, cooperating with others, and plain old having fun!

 

Elementary Music Program

Opportunities abound in our Elementary music program!  Students are introduced to a variety of music, from folk music to classical, Christian worship to seasonal selections.  They are exposed to basic music theory and given the opportunity to explore their musical talents by playing handbells and recorders. In addition to our standard music classes, we offer a beginning band class for our 5th graders.  All of our students' hard work and talent is showcased in our yearly Christmas and Spring programs.

 

Secondary Music Program

 

Intermediate Band and Advanced Band

We are blessed to have Mr. Joel Haas and Mrs. Susan Haas as our outstanding band directors.  The Haas’s have spent 33 years teaching band.  Their experience, creativity, and talent have helped our students to go on to win first place in the Oklahoma Music Educators Association state-wide band contests. Several of our students are named every year to the Southwest All-Region Honor Band. Come and listen to the students perform in our Christmas and Spring Concerts.  You will be blessed!

Chapel Crusaders

Chapel Crusaders are a dynamic group of sixth graders who work together  to prepare entire chapel presentations and then perform them during the year for our primary school students. This program builds creativity, teamwork, and confidence in our students, and it's all done as unto HIM! 

Vocal Music Program

Mrs. Allison Yates is our amazing choir director.  Mrs. Yates is not only a graduate of LCS, but she also has sung professionally.  Some of her students have gone on to win the Miss American Pageant (Lauren Nelson, Miss America 2007), and to perform solos at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. (Lisa Taylor Pratt) and at Carnegie Hall in New York City (Lindsey Doolin King).

Mrs. Yates directs our junior high choir, our high school choir, and two show choirs: Sweet Harmony and Frontline! Our vocal music students compete in both solos and ensembles in the district and state Oklahoma Music Educators Association competitions.  Many of our students receive a Superior Rating in the district competition and are then eligible to go on to the state competition to again be honored with a Superior Rating. 

Our FRONTLINE! And SWEET HARMONY show choirs compete in competitions,  along with public schools, in both the state of Oklahoma and Texas.  This past school year Frontline! competed in the Lone Star Showcase of Music contest in Dallas, Texas.  Not only did Frontline! receive the Outstanding in Class trophy, but they also received the Overall Outstanding trophy.
