Music

We believe that music is one of the essential, fundamental components of general education, as well as a means to improving it. Music requires active participation, involving the student to develop problem-solving, higher order thinking skills and creating a life-long learning experience. Music allows multi-cultural relationships to be explored, enabling students to share in the spirit of the people who created the works and their heritage.

We believe that students gain personal satisfaction, intrinsic motivation, and enjoyment from participation and believe that the music program should provide a structure for continuous growth and development for all students to pursue their individual interests and ability.

We believe that our school has an obligation to help students develop their musical potential and should provide an outlet for creativity, self-expression, coping with the subjective and maintaining a balanced perspective on life.


“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”

- Victor Hugo
