Music Department Mission Statement
The core subject of Music is for every child and every child can be successful.
The curriculum is designed to provide many different types of experiences to allow each child to discover his/her musical interests, talents, and potentialities and to develop the skills, appreciation, and love of music that will continue for life.
Music experiences are planned so that immediate success is possible, yet graduated in difficulty so that progress is always being made in some of the many aspects of music.
These experiences are meaningful so that students understand the purpose of whatever is being undertaken.
Teachers guide students in a variety of activities and use the level of difficulty appropriate to the particular situation. Music will be integrated with other subjects whenever this is appropriate and meaningful. Student’s work will be assessed according to personal improvement based on their level of understanding. Special opportunities, such as participation in district, state, and national groups will be available to students who have the interest and ability.
