Music & Voice

Trinity-Pawling trumpeter improvises a solo with the Jazz Band in Gardiner Theater

Feel the rhythm in our choral and instrumental music classes — the heart of the music curriculum at Trinity-Pawling. Our instructors are successful and seasoned musicians with a passion for teaching their craft. They guide each student in sharpening their musical abilities, from playing an instrument, to singing a cappella, to exploring music theory. 

I tend not to focus on attaining perfection in my classes. Music is marvelously subjective, which means there is ample room for everybody to contribute to the whole and make it stronger and better.
Chris Kelsey, Director of Instrumental Music
