At TCA, music instruction and fine art programming is a vital component of our well-balanced curriculum. 72% of Upper Campus are learning to play an instrument, and we have a full-time music teacher and choral director for both campuses, who meet with every classrooms 45 minutes per week. Music classes include Music Theory and Singing Instruction. TCA choir meets one hour after school at no cost, and performs at venues like City Hall, nursing homes, and during Mass.
A part-time brass instruction teacher leads the TCA jazz and brass bands, and offers free lessons for grades 4 through 8 during school hours to learn trumpet, trombone, baritone, and percussion instruments. Free lessons for wind instruments like clarinet, flute and saxophone are offered during the week by TCA’s woodwind teacher.
TCA’s band has participated in the annual Huntington School Parade and the Brockton Holiday Parade where they have twice won “Best Band in Parade.”
