Statement of Philosophy

A sound music program should have a sequence or continuity from grade to grade so that musical growth may parallel a student’s physical and emotional development. Music should begin during the early years in the elementary school at which time a student is acquiring attitudes, skills and appreciation in many fields. If the student does not get them in music, he/she might find themselves severely handicapped if they try for musical experiences later. Music is for all students, not just a talented few.
