Welcome to Performing Arts at Wheeler! As a department, we strive to nurture each student’s special talent and enthusiasm, provide the opportunity for students to explore and develop a passion for performing arts, and through performance, raise the community’s awareness of the performing arts.

The variety of materials, teaching modalities, and media presented by our teachers ensures that all students have an opportunity to explore, pursue, and succeed at activities in music and drama.

Students are encouraged to learn from and with each other through the ensemble experience, the underpinning of our program. Materials of other cultures are utilized to broaden the experience and awareness of students and their audiences. Some courses in the Upper School also serve as community outreach programs in which students perform for a variety of religious, cultural, educational, and charitable organizations each year. These opportunities help students value the diverse cultures of their world, encourage respect for all people, encourage community service, and heighten performance skills.
