Overview

Musical performance is a vital component of all programs.  Individualized instruction allows for a nurturing environment reflecting high regard for the musical legacies of the past as well as preparedness for the future.  Graduates in music have gone on to careers as professional performers, public school music teachers, band directors, choral directors, church musicians, and private music teachers.
