Our goal in the Visual Arts is to engage our students in unique learning experiences which encourage them to be independent artists. Who use critical thinking and problem solving skills to create art at a high level.
Our philosophy for physical education is to provide our students with the skills, knowledge and attitude necessary to enjoy a healthy and physically active lifestyle.
Music offers opportunities to develop the senses and deepen the perception of complex relationships and subtlety of expression, it engages us in critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making through the use of judgment rather than the seeking of a single correct answer, and it gives us the opportunity work as group as well as express ourselves in sound, movement, and speech. The interpretation of musical works requires an understanding of the forms, patterns and musical language they employ, as well as the history, purpose, and culture that shaped their creation. Music is for everyone!
Music and the education of music improves the quality of life. – Paul R. Lehman
