No department is a more powerful example of the benefits of a boys school than the music department. At McCallie boys sing, play classical guitar, compose music, play in the orchestra or wind ensemble.
After exposing students to the basics in skills and ideas, McCallie boys have a wide variety of opportunities to follow their artistic passions. The faculty of the music department encourages all ranges of ability and believes that through practice and study all boys can acquire the skills to be proficient musicians.
Students and alumni frequently acknowledge that they participated in music in ways they would never have considered in a coeducational environment. On the Ridge, however, they feel more free to explore and nurture their curiosity and interest in music, be it through their voice or through another instrument.
