    Music Department

    “The arts are fundamental resources through which the world is viewed, meaning is created, and the mind developed.”

    Elliot W Eisner, Professor of Education and Art, Stanford University
    Music Department Philosophy
    The philosophy of the SDOC Music Department is to offer all students the opportunity to gain and/or build upon their existing musical and collaborative skills in a supportive and enriching environment.
    Students who dedicate themselves to or seek to experiment in the creation of music are
    welcomed and encouraged. 
    The ensemble experience of being part of a group working toward a common goal is emphasized through the reinforcement of rehearsal protocol, pride in group accomplishment, and instilling pride in oneself.
