Welcome to Music!


Parents and families, please feel free to contact me at kellisilvestri@gmail.com if you have any questions regarding music at St. Francis Xavier School. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

 

 

Children's Choir 

The St. Francis Xavier Children's Choir is open to all interested 4th through 8th grade students at our school. Membership is dependent on spots available - we can take 40 members each year. We rehearse every Friday afternoon from 3:30-4:30pm in the music room. Our performance schedule includes singing at Church once a month as well as our Spring Concert towards the end of the school year. Being part of choir is a great way to grow musically and create beautiful music with your friends! 

 

Below is the Children's Choir Handbook for the 2016-2017 school year. 

Included in the handbook are all of our rehearsal, Mass, and concert dates, as well as the rules and expectations of being in this ensemble. 

Piano Lessons

Piano lessons are available at St. Francis Xavier to students in Grades 1 through 8. Lessons are once a week, and we also have an annual piano recital in April to showcase our students. To get your child on the piano lessons waiting list, please email me! 


Music Classes

I teach general music classes for grades Pre-K through 8th. Each grade has music class once a week, on either Tuesdays or Fridays. 


Students explore music through:


Singing

Playing instruments

Movement and Dance 

Composing and improvising their own music 

Studying composers from music history


Grades 1 through 8 also learn how to prepare music for Mass!
