Our recording studio is located in McCrory Hall for the Performing Arts and is used in conjunction with our Songwriting, Music Production, and Recording courses and Afternoon Program.
St. Andrew's-Sewanee has long enjoyed a strong reputation for its arts programs. All Upper School students must complete an arts course for graduation. Classes are demanding in scope and expectation. In addition to scheduled courses, students are able to pursue instrumental, vocal, and dance studies through private lessons. Students also may audition for the Sewanee Symphony Orchestra, the Sewanee Jazz Ensemble, and Perpetual Motion dance productions at the University of the South.
All courses listed below are one semester courses and may be taken repeatedly for credit. In addition to these offerings, students may take private voice, instrumental and/or dance lessons for an additional fee. They may also participate in SAS, community, and University performances in theatre, orchestra and dance.
