While our music program has the ability to produce fine musicians, its true aim is to help produce fine human beings. Our graduates go forth into the world with the tools our age so desperately needs for cultural renewal. They understand that working takes effort, perseverance and a refinement of skills. They have experienced the dynamics of working within a group of peers with differing abilities in order to produce something fine, beautiful and meaningful. At our school, the students have had the chance to experience the finer, subtle aspects of music-making. As the graduates leave the school, it is our hope that they are able to allow those aspects to blossom in every aspect of their lives so that they may experience the fulfillment of truly living musical lives.
