The mission of the music department is to provide opportunities for all students to learn through musical expression. The program develops cognitive, affective, and sensory-motor growth through which students can experience music as an integral part of their development.
The music curriculum focuses on students’ abilities to perceive and react to the expressive elements of music. It deepens their sense of creativity and nurtures an openness to the cultural values and contributions of themselves and others. The experiences and understandings inherent in this program, through performing and non-performing opportunities, will enable students to live and communicate as responsible members of a pluralistic society.
