PHILOSOPHY OF MUSIC EDUCATION
It is the educational philosophy of the Colonial School District Music Department to provide each student with an opportunity to experience music representing diverse ethnicities, races, religions and cultures. Music has always been both a reflection of humankind’s actual experience of life and of our ideal vision of individual and community life. Our goal is to teach students a range of repertoire from different styles and time periods, both historical and contemporary. We believe that it is in sharing this richness that we gain deeper understanding of the arts. In an effort to provide balance in our programs, a variety of musical selections are included in the curriculum and in each concert. Participation in the performance of the repertoire does not necessarily suggest a belief by each performer in the philosophy of the music. However, student participation is part of our school-wide commitment to live harmoniously in a world of differences.
