The philosophy of the Music Department is to provide for the development of a musically expressive individual. Music contributes a positive self-image for success in creating, listening and performing. Music connects a student globally with other cultures, periods and places. Music can embrace, enhance and support all other subject areas. Emphasis will be placed on the four New York State Learning Standards for the Arts.
Students are reminded that one credit in art/music must be satisfactorily completed as part of the New York State graduation requirements.
