Music Education Philosophy

The arts contribute to the achievement of social, economic and human growth by fostering creativity and providing opportunities for expression beyond the limits of language. Every child should have a sustained education in music. The study of music teaches mental discipline and creative problem solving. It instills attentiveness, greater cooperation, personal reflection, and curiosity. These qualities come about through a lifelong affiliation with the study of music. The study of music provides us with experiences that lead to greater musical as well as intellectual and personal improvements.
