The Music Department believes that the study of music develops students’ abilities to express themselves. Through the development of their unique talents they learn to not only appreciate, but create music. By combining training in music, music history, theory, music production, and performance, students become a part of the music world. From Jazz Ensemble to Rock Band, students learn how to express themselves through music and gain confidence in their artistic talents. We offer opportunities to learn instruments such as strings, woodwind, brass, and percussion to gain appreciation for the art of musical expression. Throughout the semester, students perform their songs for an audience and share their experience about performing on stage.
