Music Program

The music program at Ironwood has been fueled in large part by the talent, enthusiasm, and interest of the residents themselves. There are two types of groups that are a part of the current music program at Ironwood: music appreciation and performance. All students at Frye participate in music appreciation while students at the Farmhouse participate in both music appreciation and performance groups.

There are two types of groups that are a part of the current music program at Ironwood: music appreciation and performance. All students at Frye participate in both groups, while students at the Farmhouse are often allowed to choose their level of participation.

Music appreciation often takes the form of a music listening time, during which students listen to music spanning all genres of the musical continuum, often challenging the teens to explore music that they otherwise might never have heard. During listening time, residents are each asked about their favorite aspect of every song – even those songs that they do not like. These listening exercises are designed to broaden students’ interests and learn to appreciate the variety of music that exists.

Performance group is the time devoted to preparing for Parents’ Weekend. Residents have a variety of musical instruments available, and teens are also allowed (and encouraged!) to use their own. The director draws on students’ own skills and interests, exploring many different genres; songs for performance are often chosen from those that have been listened to during music appreciation group. Students work on both solo and small group songs to perform for their families, and are supported in using their own talent to pull the program together. Students who participate in performance group but who do not want to perform at Parents’ Weekend often provide valuable feedback to their peers about things they could try or improve upon.
