Studio Philosophy

Every natural being in the world has a pulse, rhythm, and pattern expressed in a variety of ways. Music is but one example. It is an integral component of human existence that knows no boundaries of ethnic or economic origin. It is, in fact, the international language of choice that has the power to promote peace in the global community. Music encourages harmony among every living organism. It is the ultimate gift from the Creator.

Objectives

The focus of music education deals with the whole person and the integration of music into a significant place in student life. Technical skills and music theory are the building blocks of musicianship. Listening, performing, practicing, and composing are a part of this process. Self-discipline in study and practice, poise for performances, ability to share and express individual ideas result in a sense of self worth, accomplishment, and independence. The ultimate objective is to bring the mind, body, and soul to one experience via music performance and communicate that to the listener.
