Our primary aim is to promote to a maximum degree the musical intelligence and potential of each student through active participation in all genres of music in large and small ensemble settings, group and individual technical instruction, and interaction with performing artists.  In addition to the development of musical skills, students learn positive, professional work ethics, becoming responsible citizens.


    See the “Music Department Documents” link below for the Handbook and Policies all students are expected to follow.
