Pine-Richland Music Department
Inspiring and connecting people for a lifetime through creating, performing and responding to music.
The Music Department believes that the role of music instruction in the schools is to provide opportunities for children to discover their innate musical abilities in a safe, fun and collaborative classroom environment. Music-making is a human behavior across all cultures, and all students deserve the chance to find their place in the culture of music in the school community and beyond. In addition to building musicianship, studying music allows for full use of the brain and facilitates learning and healing on many levels. Musical skills and behaviors learned in school will serve students for life.
