St. James Academy: In Tune with Students’ Innate Need and Ability to Perform

0

Ample research demonstrates the multiple benefits that regular exposure to music education provides for children of all ages: improved attention, memory, focus, auditory and memory skills, and overall cognition. Yet, too often, budget cuts squeeze music education funding, forcing schools to pare down or eliminate music classes altogether for school-aged children. St. James Academy in Monkton, however, is bucking this trend. In recent years, their music and performance arts offerings have increased in number and scope due to the quality of the St. James program, creating life-long music enthusiasts and confident performers.

Much of the credit for St. James’ strong performing arts program stems from a supportive administration and extensively trained faculty who not only teach but also perform professionally. Director of Performing Arts and vocal music teacher Randi Martin, who holds a master’s degree in music education from Loyola University, a certification in YogaVoice® Technique, and additional training in the Alexander Technique, Vocal-Cross Training, Orff, and Gordon Music Learning Theory, sees the performing arts as much more than a dispensable academic elective. At St. James, the extensive performing arts program includes courses in dance/movement, Orff for percussionists, wind and string instruction, plus three musicals.

The Rollout of R.E.D. Block at Roland Park Country School

New RPCS Curriculum Offers Students Toolkit to Effect Change

How is leadership learned? At Roland Park Country School, our teachers and administrators strive to show our students what leadership looks like and the paths they can take to get there through integrity, courage and character. But we also recognize the worth of real world experiences.

To help empower students in grades 9-11 to find their voices, lead for the greater good and put their learnings into practice, Roland Park Country School recently rolled out a new program called R.E.D. (Reflect. Explore. Do.) Block. R.E.D. Block is the central strand of the RPCS Leadership and Entrepreneurship Institute, which equips our Upper School students with robust offerings designed to embolden them to create positive change in the world and help them consider, with their numerous strengths, what kind of difference they intend to make, and how they might begin to make their ideas into realities.

In R.E.D. Block, every student is involved in activities that require deep-thinking, exploration and creative problem solving to foster resilience, promote healthy risk-taking, nourish passions and curiosity, and promote purposefulness.

“We are always looking for intentional and meaningful ways to encourage our next generation of women leaders,” said Caroline Blatti, Head of School. “R.E.D. Block shows our students what is possible and how their actions can truly change the world.”
