Our music curriculum has aesthetic, creative, cultural, and academic values that complete and further the educational and social values of a quality education. We want to help all children understand and enjoy music. We want to discover and nurture musical talent. Every child should have the opportunity to develop their potentiality for musical expression through exploration, experimentation, exposure, and enrichment.
The study and playing of a musical instrument and vocal training, whether alone or in a group, offers the young person a lifelong enjoyment and appreciation of music. This might be attained through creating, performing, or eventually, just as an educated listener. The pursuit of music, one of the Creative Arts, leads to deeper understanding and love for the other Arts.
All students have access to the Music Department microsite, containing lots of resources to support classroom lessons, learning at home, further study, and careers.
