Welcome to THA's Music Program!
The music program at Thomas Heyward Academy serves all students. Through singing, listening, moving, creating, playing, and reading music, students develop and refine their skills in the music concepts of duration, pitch, tone color, expression, design and cultural context. These concepts connect with National Standards for Music Education. Efforts are always made to integrate music instruction with specific themes being studied in other curricular areas and multicultural music is presented in all classes throughout the year. There are performances that include K3 through 6th grade, 8th grade Percussion Ensemble, and High School Drama 1.
THA's music program is thankful to Ms. Dinah Gretsch and the Gretsch family for their support.
"Ms. G's Music Foundation" plays an important role in our music program. Throughout the year, our music students learn how to play the musical instruments provided. Drums, guitar, bass guitar and ukuleles are some musical instruments students learn to play. Students also participate in our Veteran's Day program and our Spring Musical.
