Our Philosophy

Pleasantdale's Philosophy on Music Education

  
Our Definition
 
Music education is the study and practice of organize sound and silence used to express and elicit human emotion.
 
 
Our Purpose
 
Music education students gradually build musical, cultural and cross curricular literacy while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination, and dexterity through musical forms of expression and communication.
 
 
Students will:
  •  explore, practice, and develop musical skills through singing, dancing, or playing an instrument.
  •  enhance their social and emotional well-being.
  •  build self-confidence.
  •  participate in experiences that transcend culture and history.
