Music in Schools

Our Mission / Vision

We are committed to fostering a sense of community as well as offering the highest level of musical performance and instruction. Our hope is to provide students of all ages with the skills they need to enjoy music for a lifetime. Our mission is to develop a community of learners in which all members engage in challenging academics and the unique resources of our region in order to become active citizens and responsible stewards of our community. This mission encompasses a variety of programs and curricula, traditional and innovative which are regularly examined for effectiveness, quality and relevance.
