The study of music brings growth and development in many ways. By performing in both large and small ensembles students will develop highly refined listening skills, personal confidence, healthy self-esteem, cooperation, collaborative skills, and leadership qualities.
Individual study of an instrument helps each student develop self-discipline, the ability to set short- and long-term goals, and better understand achieving quality through perseverance and dedication. Students will also gain many other qualities, including empathy, humility, respect, responsibility, and resilience.
Most importantly, St. George’s School believes that the study of music allows us to celebrate and preserve our cultural heritages, and to explore the realms of expression, imagination, and creation resulting in new knowledge. It is a medium that allows us to express what words cannot.
