Music education is a means by which an educational institution can transmit to students the cultural heritage of society. Experiences in music develop a student's ability to make valuable judgments, to function logically as well as intuitively, and to utilize one's innate creativity. Participation on performance organizations encourages initiative and leadership in the students, stimulates goal-oriented thought processes, creates an appreciation and respect for the efforts of others, and assists students to develop a sense of responsibility to themselves, the organization, and in a broad sense, society. We recognize that not all High School musicians will make music their career. However, the mental discipline and though processes required in the study of music are applicable in all fields of endeavor.
