Our mission in the Upper Moreland Township School District is to provide a comprehensive music program in which students will develop the skills and knowledge to perform and appreciate music as life-long participants through sequential, performance-based instruction.
Music is an integral part of a complete education. It engages students in individual and group activity; develops creativity, problem solving skills, critical thinking, and evaluative skills. Music integrates understanding from multiple disciplines and leads to an improved self-concept, a broader cultural awareness, and a development of life-long skills. Music develops the total person and evokes the very essence of humanity. Through performance-based music instruction, students discover and develop their potential through varied, sequential musical experiences in listening, performing, and creating.
”Music gives a soul to the universe,
wings to the mind, flight to the imagination,
and life to everything.”
