Music speaks when words fail. Music fills our lives with joy, contentment and emotion, and speaks all languages. At Tampa Prep, we allow music to do this by performing it at the highest caliber.

Members of the Band and String Orchestra programs grow through music each year. Studies have shown that most students who have a great understanding of music are more intellectually stimulated with greater success in academic studies. The Band and String Orchestra programs create an emotional uplift to a students' daily life. Most importantly, it is the driving force for artistic expression, emotion, creativity and discipline from within.

Choral students learn how to use their voice properly and also realize that their voice is an integral part of the entire chorus. They must not work as individuals, but together, for the benefit of the entire group. Every day, students perform a series of different warm-ups and rigorous vocal exercises. After warm-ups, students practice reading the language of music without ever hearing it. Next comes the actual music. We perform many different styles of music, from Mozart to Motown. This is where the magic happens, everything from goose bumps to tears to laughter. 

The skills gained, the traits developed and the lessons learned through the Tampa Prep Music program will last a lifetime. The Tampa Prep Music Department strives to touch and change lives through music. Not just the people that listen to the music, but also the people performing the music. We are making the world a better place, one song at a time. 

The Music department at Tampa Prep offers a wide variety of musical ensembles that enhance students' lives through performing. This provides students a great way to express themselves artistically and give them a break in the day from their academic studies.

If you are entering Tampa Prep as a 6th grader you will participate in the Beginning Band Program. This is great opportunity for a student to learn either flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, trombone or percussion starting in the fall semester.

Middle School Band is for 7th and 8th graders who have had previous experience playing an instrument.

Middle School Chorus
is offered both the fall and spring semesters and is open to anyone wishing to sing. There is no previous experience required.

Upper School Band is an excellent ensemble made up of the finest instrumental musicians here at Tampa Prep. Previous experience is a must. Grades 9-12

The Concert Chorus is offered to all students 9-12. The Chamber Chorus is a select group of singers. There is an audition requirement for this ensemble.

Music Studio Ensemble is a performing arts course for students who want to learn to create their own music. Students in this class will learn fundamental composition methods to help them lay the foundation for their own Garage Band/iPad music.

All of the ensembles here at Tamp Prep give at least one public performance each semester. The performances are held here on campus. We welcome all to share their talents and artistry through music.
