The mission of the Troy High School Instrumental Music Program is to provide an environment that fosters the development of self-discipline, respect, and integrity.  While encouraging a team mentality, the program strives to provide equal opportunity for students to develop their own critical and creative thinking skills through a comprehensive music curriculum that promotes a sense of belonging and self-worth.  The program will provide an opportunity for students to share their achievements with peers, family, and the community.  Through the study of music and performance, students are encouraged to mature into lifelong learners and develop into self-motivated audience members, performers, and supporters of the arts.
