Rabun Gap’s music program provides a place to nurture and develop the natural musical abilities and skills of our students from Pre-K through graduation. The study of music at Rabun Gap provides an avenue for students to develop skills that will support them in all aspects of their lives. Music education positively affects language development, increases IQ, develops spatial-temporal skills, and improves test scores. Studying music also encourages character development, improves students’ abilities to focus, and builds self-worth.
The music program at Rabun Gap allows students passionate about instrumental music to join the orchestra. Student instrumentalists participate in the pit orchestra for musicals and Cirque productions, as well as perform solos and chamber music throughout the year. Students interested in vocal music may join the Rabun Gap Chorus and/or smaller auditioned groups including the a cappella group, “Gap 8,” or the men’s Barbershop Quartet.
