Music studies cause you to learn music, of course, which is something you will have for the rest of your life.  But you also learn so much more!  You learn about yourself, about being a part of a team, about art of all types, about self-discipline and commitment, about being professional in your preparation, communication, interactions, and even attire.

 Future Opportunities 

Most students don’t go into music related careers, although we teach you well enough that you could do that if you want to. 

What you learn in music prepares you to be successful in whatever you choose to do in life whether it is as a scientist, a doctor, a teacher, an engineer, a mechanic, a mother, a father, etc.
