The Mission of the Music Department is to enable all students, regardless of their degree of musical skills or expertise, to achieve excellence in the Fine Arts Standards of Creation/Performance, Perception, Context, Tools and Integration while constantly reinforcing the Rhode Island Common Core of Learning. Students will experience the importance of music and how it relates to their own humanity. Students will develop life long skills in problem solving, analysis, goal setting, creativity and peer cooperation. A wide variety of literature is studied from classical to contemporary. Performing ensemble students will undergo a constant search for "artistic perfection". Students will be prepared for various career opportunities in music, will experience a variety of public performances for personal enrichment and will participate in community service and competition.
