The Philosophy of PVRHSD Music Department
Music is universal, cultural, and individual. Music is an integral part of the human condition, and is essential to the well-rounded education of all students. The ability to create, perform, and respond to music emotionally and intellectually has an important humanizing influence. The skills, knowledge, and habits acquired through the study of music enrich students’ lives. Through these experiences, students build positive personal relationships with others, preparing them to live and work in a culturally diverse society. Music is a common thread that has the power to link peoples and ideas together. Music education strives to provide insight into the universal human experience.
The Mission of PVRHSD Music Department
The Pascack Valley Regional School District offers a variety of music courses that will enhance this experience.
