The Music curriculum is based on the knowledge that everyone can learn to play an instrument.  The curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve this goal.

Successful Music students:
  • practice regularly
  • participate in extracurricular ensembles to enhance their skills
  • sign out instruments over the summer so they can continue to enjoy and learn to play their instrument
  • participate in some if the many co-curricular music events held during the school year (like coffee house and Remembrance Day assemblies) to learn new things and develop leadership skills.
