From introductory through honors courses, Webb’s music program emphasizes both technical mastery and public performance skills for strings, woodwinds and voice students. In addition to private lessons on campus, music students can practice with faculty members during fine arts labs, learn in workshops with visiting musicians, conductors and composers, and attend concerts at the region’s world-class performance venues.
The Webb Schools Orchestra and the Chamber Singers give several major concerts each year. Each spring, Webb’s music students develop and perform their own chamber concert, and can play in the orchestra accompanying the school’s annual musical production. In addition to the musical, choral students can rehearse and perform a variety of pieces in the student-run a capella club.
Webb music students also write their own pieces, developing and articulating their own music as they master notation and analysis.
With this foundation balancing performance and theory, Webb students have attended top music programs at universities including Stanford, Oberlin and Cleveland Institute of Music, and gone on to successful careers in music.
