Our Approach to Music Education
The focus of our program is on comprehensive musicianship – the development of musical perception, aesthetic sensitivity, and technical mastery. Parents, families, friends and the community are given the opportunity to see this on display through our performances at concerts and various community events. There are other social enrichment by-products and the development of priceless life skills learned by all our band members, but these are in addition to the foundation of our band's number one priority - music education.
We cannot, and do not, take for granted what "being in band" means to our students. Although it might seem we are completing one performance and then preparing for the next, there is a much greater educational agenda being shared every day in our rehearsal room. Learning music is preparing our students to be successful in life.
