Music & Drama

Music

Holy Family School is proud of its dedication to the Arts, which includes our Music Department. Under the very capable direction of a staff member from Northeastern Music, students from Kindergarten through 8th grade receive music instruction once a week, learning about music history and music theory.  
 
An Instrumental instructor hired through Northeastern Music provides instrument lessons to our students (at an additional cost) and directs both a Beginner's Band and an Advanced Band at HFS. The bands have the opportunity to participate in concerts and festivals outside of the school setting, widening their circle of musical accomplishments and experience.
 
Guitar lessons will be offered again this school year.  Holy Family has seven Martin Guitars, which were donated to our school as part of a grant from the Martin Guitar Foundation.  John Slog, an alumnus of Holy Family School, is the owner of Guitar Villa.  He has graciously donated an adult sized guitar to Holy Family School.  Lessons are provided by an instructor hired by Guitar Villa.   Guitar lessons are offered once weekly to students in grades 4-8, at an additional cost to the student's family at $25 per lesson.
 
Our HFS youth are also blessed to receive musical lessons from Holy Family School's Music Minister.  The Music Minister works with our students on a regular basis, teaching them hymns that are part of the Catholic Mass. Those classes then take turns singing those hymns with the congregation when they attend a Friday morning Mass as part of their school-day. The Music Minister also directs both a Cherub Choir and a Children's Choir, practicing after school hours with those who voluntarily wish to participate. The choirs then sing once a month during a Sunday morning Mass at Holy Family Church, raising their beautiful voices in praise of the Lord.
 

Drama

Our school is blessed to have a drama club. The Holy Family School Players involve students from first through eighth grades in a full-fledged musical. The Players present a superb and elaborate production annually to the HFS family and community. These productions are under the expert direction of Mrs. Annalyse Tanzos. The Players are another source of pride at Holy Family School. The drama club expands and enriches their actors' many talents while bringing much joy to the audience.

In addition to the successful drama club, Holy Family School is proud to have Mrs. Tanzos teach our students in grades 4-8 theater classes.  Students in grade 4-8 may sit for theater classes two trimesters each school year.  They must be scheduled for one traditional art class per school year.  Each trimester a sign-up genius will be sent to the Holy Family School families to register for the theater classes.  Only ten students from each grade (4-8) will be permitted to register for theater classes.  Registration is on a first come, first served basis.  Theater classes are at an additional cost to the student's family ($195 per trimester).
