The study of music contributes positively to the quality of every student’s life. Students have an opportunity to creatively express themselves vocally and instrumentally and can acquire knowledge of notation, composition and performance traditions which will assist them to perform, create and appreciate music independently for the rest of their lives. Our numerous musical performance organizations and varied music courses are important contributors to the musical life of our school and community.

Research has shown that involvement in music programs improves a student’s cognitive development, basic math and reading abilities, self-esteem, SAT scores, self-discipline, ability to work in teams, spatial reasoning skills, and school attendance. Children involved with music education are more likely to graduate from high school and attend college, and less likely to be involved with gangs and substance abuse.
