It is our goal to provide each student with the best possible music education. Through learning to play an instrument, each boy will develop a remarkable sense of aesthetics, a great depth of knowledge, and exceptional performance skills.
The study of music brings growth and development in so many ways. By performing in a Concert Band or Jazz Ensemble (the ultimate ‘team’ situation), students will develop highly refined listening skills, personal confidence, healthy selfesteem, cooperation, teamwork skills, and leadership qualities. They will also develop behaviour based on ethics and consideration of others.
Through the process of individual study of an instrument, each student will develop self-discipline, the ability to set short-term and long-term goals, and better understand achieving quality through perseverance and dedication. Students will also gain many other qualities, including empathy, humility, integrity, respect, responsibility, and resilience.
Most importantly, we believe that the study of music lifts the spirits, nourishes the soul, allows for deep communication, and brings joy to daily life. Music helps one truly understand that which is beautiful.
