Music class teaches life skills

In Music class, under the direction of Mr. Robertson,  students learn valuable life skills: 

  • Music is the vehicle through which they are encouraged to accomplish more than they thought possible of themselves through Practice, Perseverance and Performance.
  • Music is the vehicle through which they are encouraged to learn to work together in a group.
  • Music is the vehicle through which they learn to respect those around them.
  • Music is the vehicle to help students create beauty with the people around them.
