Music Department

  • The purpose of the vocal and instrumental music classes is to develop greater knowledge, understanding and skills through ensemble performance, listening, appreciation, history, theory and rehearsal techniques. The goal is to improve the individual’s music abilities while enhancing specific ensemble’s development. In addition, the Music Department hopes that students will develop the musical skills and appreciation that will continue throughout their high school experiences.
