Music fuels the mind thus our creativity and has the ability to make discoveries and create innovations. Artistic education developes the whole brain. The music department at Our Lady of Malibu School engages all students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth. We offer musical theatre productions as well as weekly musical instrumental instruction and orchestra. Students are often asked to perform at the Malibu Chamber of Commerce, Veteran's Day celebrations, Pepperdine's 75th Anniversary Celebration, and numerous other community events.
